Congratulations to the fourth grade class in earning their first art party of the year! There were many art party options, but students voted and chose to have a special game invented that would cater to their interests.
After a lot of brainstorming, Pokémon Go! (Art Edition) was born. Each student was in charge of inventing their own Pokémon, each with a type, name, and rarity. After the Pokémon was created, they could “battle” other student’s Pokémon through rock, paper, scissors tournaments. Only after a Pokémon was defeated could a student add that new Pokémon to their Pokedex.
Students loved the game and many opted to create several different types of Pokémon. It was a great lesson incorporating art, speed drawing, creativity, math, and of course, play!
