Games Children Play
You are a teacher or you are on your way to becoming a teacher. Perhaps you are a recreation program leader or something similar. You want to learn how to teach your students or campers or club members how to make their own video games.
Before you can do that you will want to become familiar with the “games children play!” Children love to talk about their favorite game characters and exchange strategies on how to beat this or that character or level.
Once you start introducing them how to make their own games they will ask questions like “how do I make my character jump like Mario?” or _____________ like Sonic?
So let’s find out what children play!
If you are a teacher or program leader this task will be easy because all you need to do is ask. Otherwise you will have to ask your friends’ kids, your nieces or nephews – you will figure out something!
