BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. — Deborah Adelberg’s first-grade class at Todd Elementary School in Briarcliff Manor was recently full of seasoned veterans passing along their experience to the younger pupils.
Katherine Hall’s fourth-grade class brought their personal devices to class, aimed at teaching the younger pupils how to play Cool Math games.
Hall explained the plans to the first-graders.
“The fourth-graders worked really hard on a presentation. They each picked a game, and they are going to show you how to do it.”
The work included prepared slideshows to explain their games independently and three sessions with Todd technology teacher Lori Whitman setting up the framework for the class.
Popular game choices included 'Primate Pile Up,' because in the words of one of the fourth-graders, 'people like monkeys, and it’s really colorful.'
