Art and Creativity
Sketch Nation is a great way to teach about art and to develop your students creativity.
You can use Sketch Nation as a novel way to engage your students. Have them create games based on the subject matter they are learning. Reading a book? Have them create a game around what they read.
Once your students create a game, they can give it a name. They can also write a detailed description for the game.
Let your students present the game they created in front of the class. You can even hold a vote at the end of the presentations and have the students pick the best game.
Marketing and Sales
Have your students try to "sell" their game to each other, or to another class. You can give each student 1 token to give to the best game. The students who gets the most tokens at the end can get a prize.
Sketch Nation is a great way to teach students about computer graphics. When drawing, your students are selecting the color of each pixel of the drawing. You can explain to the how pixels make up an image and how all images on the computer are made of pixels.
Sketch Nation is a great way to show students how animation is created. Students can animate their player by drawing each frame.
Sketch Nation can be used to teach Math. Our Power of 2 genre is prefect for teaching kids addition and multiplication. The rest of our games can be used to teach kids about Math by modifying different game parameters such as the gravity or player velocity.
