Project Description

We had to develop a toy or game that would encourage developmental skills in a child. For our project, one player would choose a card which would have the name of an animal. They would then describe the animal to the other players who will have to guess what it is. Players will take turns being the describer. If they guess the animal correct they get to place that animal in the biomes inside the box. They can also get fun facts every time they place an animal in a biome. The fun facts will teach them about the biomes where those animals live. At the end the one who guesses the most correct will be the winner!

Content: The top 3 things I learned from this showcase were:

We learned how to work as a team in order to increase the output of our project.
We learned that play is key in he development in children and typically toys can encourage emotional, social and physical development.
We learned that children do not typically know about our environment, so it is important to teach them how to care for our earth and animals at a young age.

Culture: This project relates or connects to my family, background, peers, community or my own personal interests in these ways:

Melvin has a little brother and they are now introducing him to card games and he seemed really excited but struggled with taking turns and sharing. EcoWorld hopefully teaches children how important respecting each other— including the world and everything living within the world. We are both really passionate about saving our planet, so we wanted to create a toy to inform people.

Metacognition: In reflection, one thing that I would have done differently during my journey with this showcase is:

We would have chosen a few more biomes, and animals to show kids how diverse the world around them really is. We would’ve also wanted to get a bigger box so this could be possible.

Social/Emotional: One thing I am most proud of by completing this showcase is:

We are very proud that we made EcoWorld a multiplayer one so kids can socialize with their peers. When we were younger we would always play alone but hopefully with EcoWorld kids won’t have to and they can learn about the world and importance of saving our environment.
