9th LEAP slot : Wait for the other shoe to drop

9th LEAP slot : Wait for the other shoe to drop

Learners were deliriously participating in the LEAP session.

VIRTUAL RIVER CROSSING.

Pairs were made for “RIVER CROSSING” and both the partners were provided with Salamander and four fishes counters. The aim of this game was to make the Salamander cross the river. The fishes were trying to block the way of Salamander and didn’t allow it to cross the river.

Player 1 had to become the  Salamander while the Player 2 was the fish. Player 1,started the game as a salamander on the square with the Red Cross, and the fish on the squares with the Black crosses. In each turn, the salamander could move one step diagonally, backward or forward.The fish could move down the board diagonally towards the salamander one square at a time but not allowed to move backward. Each turn salamander and fish had to make a move. The fishes could win if they could block the salamander from crossing the river otherwise the Salamander would win.

This is an amusing strategic game for developing learner’s logical thinking skills and has very simple rules.While playing this game, they were using their logical intelligence, interpersonal intelligence (working in group) and intrapersonal intelligence (working individually).

Important Note:

I am attaching the Images of Answer key for the last cycle’s homework worksheets for you to tally the answers. Do correct the worksheets and send them back without fail as our learners maintain a LEAP file in the class.
