22 EQ simulation… Great to stimulate discussion and introduce problem solving. Year 6-8 Teacher Just loving EQ. I am using it with an extension Y7-8 group and they are flying. But could use it with any level. They are doing big projects which unfortunately wont be finished till early next term. One of the best teaching experiences Ive ever had! Social Studies Teacher The kids enjoyed making the decisions. They also loved connecting to the web. After the first week they all went straight to the leader board after theyd input their decision to see where they were coming. They were thrilled to see their logos and other work on the website. It was great to see how quickly some of them picked up how to send emails and scan information in. Primary Teacher
