Chemistry Trumps Teachers Notes


Teacher notes

Dr Hal's Chemistry Trumps was conceived and researched by Dr Hal Sosabowski.

There are two objectives in getting children to play with any of the Dr Hal's Science Trumps range. For the pupils/players, the objective is probably to win the game, but clearly there is meant to be a learning outcome, sometimes referred to as camouflaged learning. The games are designed to engage the players through gameplay but also to generate discourse and occasionally mild-mannered arguments about why certain trump factors are the values they are. This can form the basis for an excellent post-game classroom discussion. The Elementary Facts at the foot of the cards are designed to introduce some takeaway learning from the games.
