GalacTuesday: Stardoku

 

This week I’m posting photos of my student, Andrew, as he wracks his brain cells playing Stardoku, a cubed puzzle where one must write LIGHTYEAR or SUPERNOVA vertically, horizontally and in each of the nine boxes. Since Andrew took forever to figure out one puzzle, I gave him the second for homework.

If you are interested in playing Stardoku or other space-themed games, simply click these Amazon and Smashwords links. If you are interested in writing a review for The Galactivity Book or simply would like a free copy, please leave a comment and I will gladly email you a Smashwords coupon.

Beware of Spider

Yesterday I was teaching a lesson about Survival of the Fittest when one of my students raised his hand and said, “Teacher, I’m sleepy.” So I told everyone to close their books, grab some clay and make their favorite animal. A student and I decided to make Spider, who uses his mighty web and eight legs to survive the treacherous world of Minecraft.

As always, art saves the day!
