Problem Solving and Critical Thinking Skills through Game Based Learning
Students in grades 6-8 lack problem solving and critical thinking skills. They need to think for themselves more and not rely on teacher’s step-by-step instructions for everything. Students will need to be more independent when they enter high school and outside of school as an adult. Being able to make decisions on your own by thinking of the outcome is an essential skill. By using Game Based Learnning students have the opportunity to think for themselves in a fun and highly motitivated environment.
