Ever wanted to eat your words? We’ve launched a fun online game that lets you do just that!
Developed with support from the Telematics Course Development Fund, Story Monster uses the moving image to promote learning and literacy skills. Designed for primary school students, the game is loads of fun for grown-ups too (and is a great way to brush up on grammar).
When you start the game, you’ll design your very own monster, then lead it through different ‘themed’ worlds, including science fiction, adventure and fantasy. Your objective? To feed your monster a tasty assortment of words. But be careful: your monster can only eat well-formed sentences. Put a verb where an adjective should go and you’ll need to start over.
Once your sentence is complete, your monster will act it out for you. It’s so much fun, kids won’t even realise they’re learning.
Head on over to the Story Monster to check it out.
