Kinesthetic Coordinate Graphing
Graphing with a Computer Game
Try a fun and FREE computer game to practice coordinate graphing. Game Over Gopher is a game I found on BrainPop and I probably enjoyed it a little more than a 31-year-old is supposed to ; ) The idea is that you have to place carrot shooters (and other various devices) on a coordinate grid keep gophers from eating the big carrot. The first level is easy and shows students exactly where to place the items and it gets more challenging from there. I love how it walks your students through exactly how to play the game. By the third level the game goes into using 4 quadrants but you can always have your students stop at level 3 if necessary.
