Educational Card Games
Smith, D. R.; Munro, E.
Physics Education, v44 n5 p479-483 Sep 2009
A number of years have passed since the development of the "Voyager: Satellites" educational card game reported in "Physics Education" in 2003. Since then, a large number of copies of the game have been produced and distributed across the UK, to a warm reception from both pupils and teachers. This article reports on some of the feedback received about the game over the five years of the project and gives some examples of how the game has been incorporated into the school curriculum. The recent development of other science-related educational card games that are now available for use in schools is also discussed and it is hoped that this article will give inspiration to others to generate their own educational card games and enjoy some of the positive benefits of "playing" in the classroom.
