Students will make a paper football game where they need to kick or throw their paper football into a goal. When someone scores a goal, your team needs to turn on a light that indicates that the person has scored. Your team will build a simple circuit with wires, a LED, battery and button. You will wire this to your game. Students will build their game out of cardboard and paper and recycled plastic. Each team needs to have rules to their game that includes directions, how to score, how many attempts players get to score, how to win the game, and what each score equals. Teams will capture and narrate their plan, capture their directions, capture themselves building the game and capture the football going into the goal. If your students want to make a paper football, they should watch the video on the CrossBraining Youtube channel that shows them how to fold a paper football. When you unfold the paper football you will see numerous creased lines that will allow you can teach a number of geometry standards that address parallel lines, perpendicular lines, adjacent angles, right angles, acute angles, obtuse angles and so much more.
You will LEARN how to build a simple circuit that will power a LED that will be used as a score indicator. You will LEARN how to build a paper football that is used in a game built out of cardstock. You will include instructions that show, how to play and score so that when the player scores, a button is pressed lighting up the LED to indicate they have scored. You must CAPTURE (video) the following: your plan, building your circuit and game, a change or fix you have made, the score indicator working when someone has scored. You will SHARE the directions on how to play the game with the people who play your game. You will use a LED, Wire, Resistor, Switch and Battery to build your simple circuit. You will also be given cardboard and duct tape to build your game.
