Games and Learning

This is a blogpost about games. 

My favourite games (digital and non-digital) are:

*Speed(Physical\Card Game)
*Awesome Tanks 2(Digital)
*Graveyard (Physical\card Game)
*Snap (Physical\Card Game)

The reason/s why I enjoy playing these games are:

*The reason why I like 2048 is because it really gets my mind thinking and because it is a challenge to try by the highest score.
*I like speed because when you flip the 2 cards at the beginning I really get excited to start putting down cards.What I find challenging is recognising the cards quickly so that is what I would like to work on
*I enjoy playing Awesome Tanks 2 because I like beating the other tanks\opponents
*I really like playing Graveyard because you really need to be careful about what cards you put down and favourite part of Graveyard is when you have the last 3 cards facing the floor.When you flip you really test your luck
*Like Speed I like playing Snap because its just about recognising the same cards and snapping them as soon as you see 2 of the same pair

Learning could be made much more fun and interesting if it included these elements of a game:
*Obstacles like the floor is lava

All About Me

Walt:Draw about four very important things

Task Description:
In this picture are the 4 things I find important in my life so i will explain why they are important to me.First off in the top left corner is my church Tamaki P.I.P.C which means Pacific Islanders Presbyterian Church.Also in the top left corner is a cross and a bible representing Sunday School because Sunday School is where I learn most about the lord.In the top right corner is also very important to me because it is a samoan flag and Samoa is my culture, alongside the flag are 2 samoan patterns.On the bottom right I put down the words "Family Forever" because my family is a very special part of my life so that is the reason I put down family in my visual mihi.Last but not least in the bottom right corneris a image that says “Music”.The reason why I put down music is because in church we sing anout thenlord and in school we sing maori waiatas so I do quite alot of music each day so that is why I put music down.
