It’s game day in the eighth grade International Baccalaureate design class at Ada Merritt K-8 Center in Little Havana in Miami.
The games the students are playing are designed by their classmates. And they’re based on books the students read for class.
Four eighth graders prepare to set off on a board game based on the book “Everlost” – set in a fantasy world between life and death inhabited by “afterlights.”
Assignments like this are one reason International Baccalaureate programs are growing in popularity.
