First me and my partner had to plan out what we were going to build.
Next we drew what we were going to build.Then we made a mini arcade out of paper. Finally we were building the arcade out of cardboard boxes. After that some classes came to our classroom and played with our arcade. It was so much fun building our acade.
And also we had to use a simple machine in our arcade.
I like that we got 6 classes to play our games. Me and my partner had fun when a lot of people got to spin our wheel.
I liked that we got to be really creative. I learned that it's fun to create things. We worked really well together.
The Class Arcade
The arcade was very fun!
I loved making the games, and trying other people’s games.
My partner and I worked together well. We made a wheel of questions.
Me and my partner built a cardboard arcade game.My partner was Jake.We worked really well together.We built a basketball game.The two side Hoops was for 2 Tickets and the far Hoops was for 3 tickets.We went inside the machine to give them the tickets.They had 11 tries to get it in a bucket. Me and Jake had one ball if they needed help.The tickets were inside the machine.Me and Jake took turns going inside the machine.
I made a basketball game.It was an inclined plane.It was fun.
I liked seeing all the kids that came to our class. It was so fun to see them win prizes. The wheel that Alexandra and I made sometimes fell off the pole. But it was funny when the class spun the wheel too hard that the wheel came flying off!! Alexandra and I worked GREAT together. We tried to agree on everything and we made it work.
The arcade was a fun thing to build. I enjoyed building it. The funnest part was that we got to work together. It was also fun to let the other kids play the arcade. We had lots of kids come and play the arcade. There were 5 classes that came in. It was fun to see the kids happy while they were playing the games especially the Kindergarten.
On 1/17/2017 we made a cardboard arcade out of a bunch of boxes and it was super fun.Six classes came in and played our arcade. Some games gave out tickets, prize’s, little pictures, more play, and some didn’t give out any thing. Me and my partners arcade game was a pin ball, You rolled a ball up a ramp to try to get it into the eyes, the nose or the mouth of a smiley face. Our arcade arcade had 3 inclined planes and a lever. It was really fun!
I had a very fun time playing my arcade. I also loved it when people came to my arcade to play. I would hand them a marble and then tell them they would have to throw the ball up to the tubes and if they made it great and if not that’s great too. Most of the time they didn’t make it in the tubes but they still got lots of points. But still they sometimes made it in the tubes.Then I gave them a marble and I demonstrated by throwing the marble in the box and then they threw it.Then I told them thanks for playing and gave them a ticket. 6 classes came to play. Then I asked another person to play. Sometimes people didn’t come and I would walk out of where my game was and started asking people to come or I just sat and waited for people to come.It was really fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The arcade was awesome because you got to be really creative with your game. The arcade involved our unit with simple machines. Each game had to have at least one simple machine. Me and my partners game involved the pulley. You had to get the ball throw the hoop or hit a star. The star was worth four points, the hoop was worth two points and the angry faces were lose one point. The arcade was hard but a lot of fun.
First me and my partner had this really cool arcade in mind. It was called ‘spin <to> win’ but then we figured out that like, 5 other people were gonna do that project, so we couldn't do that project. The 3rd day of the arcade we were drawing our arcade games on paper. It looked cool on paper but cooler as the model!!-the 4th day of the arcade we made models out of paper!! It was so cool!! We had been bringing cardboard boxes into class so we could be able to make our arcades out of cardboard and then recycle them. A few days later we got to actually make our arcades. then we let classes in to play with them. We made tickets, so you could come in and get tickets by winning the game, and then give the other games one tickets to play. then get more tickets for playing their game! It was really cool to see them go to other games and them coming to our game and having fun!! I really liked building our arcade and then letting other people have fun with it.
We are a 3rd grade class learning about the world.
