Video Game Design: Special Needs Children – Grade 4:
These students were working on a unit on Animals. They needed to research one particular animal and decide on three important facts to include in their games. The students created their own artwork and did their own game development under our guidance. One discussion held with the students is called, “How to stop an adversary without harming the adversary.” In this unit, students were asked what foods would entice the animals. In the sample with giraffes, the player character throws leaves at the giraffes. The giraffes “eat” the leaves and stop moving towards the player.
