Task Two. Backwards design

Remember that backwards design will help you to complete this project. When you’re cooking, most of the time you decide what you want to eat BEFORE you get together your ingredients. So, let’s figure out what kinds of projects your students might complete and then organize resources to help them create their projects. Just as we choose a recipe by looking at pictures, a lot of kids will choose your adventure based on the project they will complete.

Task Three. Resources for Hook & Explore Sections

Finding good resources for the “Hook” and “Explore” sections

Where can you go to find interactive games and resources to use in the “Hook” section and the “Explore” section?
