With the recent update to v14.4, Imagine Learning released a variety of brand new activities packed full of great content. Today we spotlight one of these new activities to provide a taste of Imagine Learning's expanding curriculum.
As we announced in a recent press release, Imagine Learning now includes Associated Press articles in order to provide real and relevant reading passages for students on the program. These articles will cover an array of new topics, vocabulary, and learning experiences for students.
To support the AP-article vocabulary students encounter, Imagine Learning features several new activities. One of these,Vocab Dash, is the focus of today's blog post.
How Vocab Dash WorksAs the title implies, Vocab Dash is full of excitement and action as students move their Imagine Museum monkey down the trail, dodging obstacles and collecting fruit.
Students receive points for the fruit they collect, but they receive extra points for collecting vocabulary words. These points convert to Booster Bits that students can use in the Museum later.
At certain intervals, the monkey is stopped by a barrier, at which point the student must answer vocabulary-based questions in order to continue. Students also receive Booster Bits for getting the answer correct, and they accrue additional time to gather more fruit and vocabulary words in the game.
This activity provides the opportunity for students to practice their newfound vocabulary in a fun and rewarding environment. They get to play a game, earn points for Imagine Museum, and learn all at the same time.
