BALDONNEL, B.C. – For the third year, Baldonnel intermediate students made arcade games using recycled cardboard boxes.

In March, the students set the games up in the gym, and the primary students got to learn and play the games.

Of course, the intermediate students got to play as well.

According to the school, the intermediate students developed and demonstrated their leadership skills as game leaders.

The students also practice communication skills by explaining these games and helping the younger students.

This project meets various educational learning goals, including science, literacy, building and designing, the school said.

Once the event is over, students discuss their projects and how the arcade went.

Each primary student received a small prize donated by Baldonnel Elementary School’s parents.
