Mardi Gras is coming up next month and I’ve made a digital breakout game for it. In the online game, students will learn about Krewes, throws, the King’s Cake, the Cajuns and how the date is calculated. It takes about an hour to do and is a lot of fun. The kids really enjoy doing these, even though they are a bit challenging. We did a Christmas one in December and it was a perfect way to spend one of those days when the kids are sick of reviewing for finals, but you don’t want to blow off an entire class period doing something pointless.
