  1. Options for the Xbox games you could possibly purchase.
    1) Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7, because it's entertaining and not too expensive. It could help students interact with one another using problem solving skills to make it through the world of Harry Potter! http://goo.gl/21Avo

    2) The next game I discovered looked very interesting. It requires the use of a students brain to solve everyday problems and the critical thinking skills needed to achieve a successful lifestyle. http://goo.gl/SV842

  4. 1. My first choice is PORTAL 2! for being an awesome game and it is educational, puzzle wise. My second choice would be Skyrim. It has strategy, problem solving, and books that you can actually read.

  6. 1. I think we should purchase Assassins Creed 3 and UFC Undisputed 3. In both games you can shut off the blood and isnt too violent.

  11. 1 FIFA 13. A lot of people like soccer and a lot of people like soccer games. FIFA would be a well played game by our school.
    2 NHL 13 Hockey is a cool sport and it would be a nice addition o the game collection.

    ReplyDelete
  12. 1. Fifa 13 would be a great choice, because soccer is a big sport at this school and you can learn all about it through the game and kids would enjoy it.
    2. Since we have some hockey players at this school that do not play here, we could get NHL 13, because most of the kids here support the coyotes and would enjoy playing it.

  15. 1. I would recommend for the wii, a nice racing game like Mario Kart or if we already have that, then I would go for New Super Mario Bros Wii.

    2. For an Xbox game since we already own a few of the madden games, I would recommend Fifa street, it's a great game,and it's fun.

  34. 1. Civilization Revolution-xbox 360, great strategy and great for getting students to like history
    http://goo.gl/ZzuC0
    2. Bioshock-xbox 360, This game may have some intense violence, not to mention the cussing but hear me out on this one. In my opinions the ideas that this game poses are beyond the normal spectrum for video games. The symbolism it has is enough to rival any novel if not doing a better job. I think that if a class were to study a video game instead of a piece of literature this could be worth taking a look at.
