Marbling Mumbo Jumbo
Marbling Mumbo Jumbo combines playing marble games and marble activities in order to learn math, science, history and literature. Some of the math marble games are traditional games that have been played by children for thousands of years, and some were created by the Marbling Mumbo Jumbo Team. Three, newly created games, were designed to be used inside, so that students could learn geometry terms while playing marble games year round. The team took geometry vocabulary and created games.
The Literature section contains a marble mystery and six styles of poetry. The Mumbo Jumbo Team wrote the mystery and solution. The poetry section includes directions for writing the six styles of poetry, and the team wrote examples of each style, using marbles as the theme. Science and Art Activities teach science concepts through activities that involve opportunities to use artistic expression(marble paper) and functional design(marble sculpture).
All disciplines include separate glossaries, interactive crosswords, and interactive quizzes designed by and written by students. The quizzes are scored and include marbleized comments designed by the team. Words from the discipline areas are linked to the glossaries. The project also includes an introduction written in poetry, a Thank You Page, An e-mail page, a Bibliography, a Links Page, a Bulletin Board, A Guest Book, an interview and videotape, and Our Page.
