Using JI Tap to Create Interactive Pesach Games

Grade 5 students in Rabbi Zadok's classes are working on creating interactive Pesach themed games using the JI Tap iPad app.  Their primary school audience will be our Grade 1 classes who will try these out next week.  In addition to this, once the games are created, they will be shared on the JI Tap "cloud" so that other students around the world can play them.  Through this creation and collaboration process, we have learned important lessons about making positive online contributions.

Check out some of these games below:
