Global Cardboard Challenge

On Friday, October 4th our class took part of the Global Cardboard Challenge. If you have never heard of it I urge you to watch the video that explains Caine’s arcade and why we took part of the cardboard challenge! After watching Caine’s arcade, videos of other schools participating in the Global Cardboard Challenge and watching the follow up video for Caine we discussed character traits that describe Caine. We also talked about how important it is to be creative and to use our imagination.

Our class got the whole day on Friday to team up, or work alone, and plan out our own arcade game! We had to have a name, directions and a plan before we could get our cardboard. Once we got a cardboard box, we were hard at work. Mrs. Avery introduced new materials every half an hour but we weren’t allowed to use anything besides what she gave us.

Take a look at our pictures and videos of this day and then read our comments about our favorite parts of the Cardboard Challenge!

    The cardboard challenge was fun. What we will do next year is make it hard and the game harder. It helps kids learn and how to build the games.
