Discuss how this activity improved content knowledge and assisted with preparation for the culture quiz.
This activity improved content knowledge because studying in a fun and interactive way helps you to remember what you are actually studying. This also assisted with preparation for the quiz, because it sort of forced us to not only look at the definition of the word, but also how to apply it to what we learned.
This activity improved content knowledge because it helped us interact with the vocabulary terms and the concepts of unit 3. We used them in real world terms which helped us to get a better grasp on the concepts to be prepared for the quiz rather than just studying the definition.
This activity improved content knowledge because it helps us with learning and applying the terms and definitions for unit 3. It does help remember things because your not reviewing the same thing over and over again. It lets us have fun and study at the same time, while learning about the concepts of culture, religion, and language.
I believe that the projects helped us learn our vocabulary more efficiently because we were having fun and learning at the same time. I think we all benefitted greatly from the review games because we were able to get extra study time. We were able to make mistakes while we were playing and get rewarded for getting the word right which made us want to study harder to get the reward. We got to relate the words to real life concepts which could help us later for examples on quizzes or essays.
This activity improved content knowledge because it allowed you to work and learn in such a way that you enjoy and when you enjoy doing something, it's more appealing and will make you actually want to try. This also assisted with preparation for the quiz, because it made us use what we are learning and made us apply it to many other things and that really engaged us when it came to studying.
Creating board games helped us to study our vocabulary terms in a new, more enjoyable way. In some games, you didn't just have to recite the definition of the word, but apply it in other ways, requiring you to have a better understanding of the word. As with any vocabulary to be studied, repetition is always helpful, and seeing the terms used in these games helped to reinforce their meanings. As we made the games, we also became more familiar with the words by typing definitions or questions pertaining to the words.
The board games helped increase knowledge of the voacb words because it made learning fun. If you don't study in a fun way, your mind can go off track and not be studying. You may also get bored and not want to study anymore.
Creating and playing bored games improved our knowledge and helped us prepare for the quiz by creating a fun and interactive way to learn. There was a wide variety of questions that allowed us to apply the terms in more than one way. Including multiple choice, true false, fill in the blank, and others was a good way to get our minds thinking. Playing the games made it a fun way to study along with other people. The competition aspect also helped because it was friendly competing to see who did best. Each of the games had creative twists to them and we were rewarded by advancing in the game if the questions were answered right
This game board activity improved knowledge and assisted with preparation with the quiz because we were able to create a game board while studying and imputing what we learned into it. Which is definitely much better than sitting down and rereading notes and reading the vocab words. We were able to have fun and be creative while studying and preparing for the test. The thing that was also good was that we had our group mates that were able to help us when we got confused on a vocab word which also made it more helpful on preparing for the test.
