Some Comments About Web Chase During Field Testing Tracing possible paths to reach desired bugs was one of the most enjoyable part of the game.
More Comments: The game is fun… for children and adults. Its appeal increases as strategies and possible Advantage/Obstacle messages are anticipated. There is something very satisfying about putting bugs in your lunch box while traveling about the spider web.
My student LOVED playing Web Chase. She requested to stay inside to play with peers during recess even when the rest of the class was going out. She would give up the swings to play the game. Her peers were willing to do the same. And More Comments:
During field testing, Web Chase was enjoyed by students who are blind, those with low vision, students with multiple disabilities, and their sighted peers.
Web Chase… bring it into your classroom and watch your students have fun, and learn at the same time!
