Chemistry is a fun subject. There’s no need to keep it at bay from children and let them face the worst when this subject is forced upon them all of sudden. Most of the students face problems grasping the hard concepts of chemistry. This happens because they are not familiar even with the basics, which makes it difficult to recognize the information at the level.
However, engaging students early on with the basics of this subject can give them quite a boost in their upcoming educational years. This can easily be done using the famous board game “monopoly.”
The traditional monopoly game comprises of various sets of houses. Each player is given money to spend and buy these houses and properties as well as regulate cash flow to survive in the game. A similar concept is applied to the basics of chemistry. Focusing on creating an interactive game, the Chemopoly comes with similar gameplay with sets of properties changed with the sets of chemical compounds. The game is a perfect option for engaging children into early learning of the concepts of chemistry.
Children can be engaged in different sets of compounds. These compounds are only accessible when the children know the exact formula for them. In addition, they can also combine different sets, forming particles and new compounds just like chemical reactions. Moreover, it also helps the children in understanding how chemical reactions occur and how compounds work.
How Does It Help?
- Learning chemistry isn’t boring anymore
- With the interactive gaming atmosphere, children are no longer failing to remember the basics
- Engages them in forming new compounds with their critical thinking
- Clears the pathway that has been blocked due to lack of skills in the particular subject
- Removes the barrier in understanding the difficult concepts of chemistry
