Project Humble is commencing in 3 days! 

  • The Time Bandits have snatched our hard work and the school's Quest Packages! We only have three days to help Taka, the Genius Space Monkey, finish his time machine and find the Quest Packs! 
  1. With your help we can locate the Quest Packs for the school and restore positive energy and motivation to the Classrooms. If you decide to journey into The Forgotten Time Zone you will need some instructions! 

Instructions:

  1. Introduce yourself to Taka! (In the attachment below)  
  2. Think back to when you were in elementary school what was something that you liked or disliked doing but had to do frequently. For example: reading out loud, completing homework, taking a quiz, it can be anything related to the classroom. Then use your imagination and create a quest around that task. The quests take place on the Planet ISA where anything is possible and the creatures are endless. 
  3. If you have any questions about your mission ask before you depart.
  4. It's time to collaborate Sidekicks, put on your thinking caps and strap in for the ride! 

 The first Quest Pack was spotted by a student falling out of a Time Bandit's  backpack at the entrance of the wormhole as they made their escape. It was our Homework Quest Package that we finished yesterday, it looked something like this!

Jake, attendance is a huge part of learning, way to make it into a quest or in this case a recruitment of sidekicks! 

What do you think about extending the goal and making it more of an individual challenge?

i.e. The Time Bandits are growing in number and we need your help! By showing up to school for 5 days in a row, you can help the heroes prevent the bandits from doing anything mischievous.  

Your bonus is epic! 100% classroom attendance is a true sign of motivation. Keep the good ideas coming! 

Eric great idea making this a quest for both the teacher and the students! 

Maybe adding a little bit more to the Problem would be beneficial.

i.e. The Heroes protected your classroom from the spell so your books are not sealed. Use the power of reading out loud to help break the spell in the library and free the books! 

The kids are going to love this quest, hopefully the teachers will too since they are the leader of this quest.

Also the bonus is great, maximizing motivation in the classroom is our goal. Getting everyone to participate definitely helps us reach that goal.
