An end-of-year writing activity puts the power of persuasion into your student's hands. A great activity for the end of the year. Students will write a review for an online game of their choice from a list of commonly approved school game sites. A Game At-A-Glance card on which students rate the game and write a short summary is included. Kids love to play games, and they definitely have an opinion on what they do and don't like, so this assignment is a big hit!
