Now we have made our wonderful pirate puppets, we need to evaluate them. Answer the questions on the sheet below to evaluate whether your puppet met the criteria we discussed at the beginning of our project.
Purposeful - our puppets were designed to be used in our virtual show. Did they meet their purpose?
Functional - our puppets needed to work as puppets. Do they work? Does your hand fit inside?
Appealing - our puppets needed to look good! Does yours?
Don't forget the very important word BECAUSE. Use this word in every box.
Now you need to use the Thinking Hats to evaluate your puppet.
Yellow - What do you like about your puppet? Why?
Black - What do you dislike about your puppet? Why?
Green - What could be improved? Why? How?
Over the last few weeks we have been GAMES TESTERS!
This is a really fun part of our project that involves you testing different games. You can play them again and again and again!
Algorithm: set of instructions.
When you are playing, think about these questions and answer them when you have finished playing the game.
What happens if you get the answer right?
What happens if you get the answer wrong?
What happens at the end of the game?
How could this game be changed?
How could this game be improved?
How could this game be made easier? Harder?
Can you work out the algorithm the game follows?
What happens when the keys are pressed?
How do you make the fish/rabbit/arrow move?
How is the score determined?
What is the scoring system?
Click the link to play Tennis for Two, if you have somebody to play with. If you don't, click the link for Eating Fish or Addition Race and recap these games that you have already played in school. You can also visit these again at any time!
When you have clicked on one of the links and have been taken to a game, there is a button on the top right. This button says 'see inside' and it allows you to see the algorithm (set of instructions) used to create the game. You can edit the algorithm to make the game trickier or easier. Have a go at this for a CHALLENGE!
