  • WelcomeFocus on games and activities to teach elementary theoryGoal is to leave with one game for every conceptTransitioned to teaching theory completely through games and hands-on materials 5 or 6 years agoHave collected a closet full of games since then… Before we look at games, consider 3 questions
