Shape Shooter is a SMART Board ready video game that allows students to investigate shapes and their names. Students compete for the high score as they blow-up various geometric shapes!
I create and develop commercial games, applications and more. I do the same for the students in my classroom. For my fourth graders I identified a specific need; they simply hadn't had much experience with shapes and could name only a few of them. I put my skills to use to solve this area of need.
I created Shape Shooter to engage my students in a unit on shapes. I also used the game as a passive and continuing learning tool by allowing pairs of students to play during their recess time. To say the least, it was a huge hit, and not just with my class.
Compatible with the COMMON CORE STANDARDS:
- Students will identify a polygon and parallelogram.
- Students will identify a square, rhombus, triangle, rectangle, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, circle and semi-circle.
Controls and Setup:
Simply run the executable file on a PC. To play on the SMART Board, simply touch the screen to navigate the menus and to shoot the shapes. Or use the computer mouse to point and click.
These were designed to give higher-achieving students more control and complexity.
- Right-Click to change the "ammo" or target shape.
- Press the "Space Bar" to add another row of shapes immediately.
Hi Misty!How embarrassing it's a critical spelling error:(. Of all the downloads, you are the only one to point it out (and that includes my fiance'!) Thank you so much, I have updated the file. Apparently I had uploaded the wrong one because the MUTE function was missing too!
Thanks again. If there is anything you would like for free from my store please just say the word!
