Games in action...

Interesting short film from Edutopia on a game-based project exploring mapping and planning.

In Galactic Mappers, a social studies game about physical geography, students compete in teams to create the most geographically diverse continent in a shared hemisphere. This group mapping project encourages students to collaborate, design, iterate, and present a finished product in a single class period.

You can also download the game board and cards from the site.
