Jim Propp’s “swine in a line game”

Saw this great new video from Jim Propp yesterday:

This morning I had the boys watch the video and then we spent maybe 15 min talking through the game and seeing what we could learn.

First I asked them what they thought after seeing the video:

Now we played the game and the boys made a couple of initial discoveries. You can see quickly why this is a fun game for kids to play around with:

Next we played the game one more time. We aren’t trying to solve the game in this project, just to try to learn a few things about it.

Finally, we wrapped up by talking about a few of the things they learned playing the game. This part didn’t quite go how I wanted, but it was still interesting to hear what they had to say.

I’m excited to play around with this game a bit more later in the week. It’ll be interesting to see if the boys can continue to make project towards the solution.
