Our Cardboard arcade.

  1. 1. Grade 5/6 Cardboard Arcade Challenge October 2013
  2. 2. We watched ‘Caine’s Arcade on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=faIFNkdq96U Visited the Cardboard Challenge website http://cardboardchallenge.com/ and decided we were up for the challenge of designing arcade games from cardboard boxes.
  3. 3. We had lots of discussions about the different games we saw on Caine’s Arcade and how we thought they had been made. We talked about the sorts of games that are found at arcades. We brainstormed a list of potential games that could be built and materials we would need. The students had the option of working by themselves or with a partner. They then worked to complete the design brief. The completed design brief was then presented to the teacher for discussion and checking.
  4. 4. Students had two weeks to collect as many different boxes as they could to be shared amongst the grade. Boxes began appearing in our classroom at a rapid ratethank you parents!! While we were collecting boxes we had a go at building small pinball games using shoe boxes. Our local shoe shops were very pleased to get rid of their empty shoeboxes. We based our pinball games on the pinball design found at http://pbskids.org/fetch/games/activities/pdf/FETCH_PinballWizard.pdf
  5. 5. Then the day arrived to start work on our arcade games.
  6. 6. Once our arcade games were finished we set them up in our assembly area and opened our arcade to customers (the other students).
  7. 7. Our Arcade was VERY successful and everyone had lots of fun. We will have our Arcade open for business again very soon.
