One of the ACT challenge traditions is to memorize and recite the Gettysburg Address! Some students even may wish to dress up to "play the part."
To complete this challenge, students will need to memorize and recite the first and last names of all United States Presidents! Good luck!
The concept behind Perplexus was created by 3-D design teacher Michael McGinnis in the late 1970′s as a project for an art class. Michael envisioned turning his creation into a toy. He had no idea this vision would turn into a decades long odyssey to get the game to market. The Perplexus Epic was just named game of the year! We have all four versions in our ACT classroom that students may choose to play when we have Brain Game time.
This challenge is certainly a FAVORITE! Students love trying to figure out the algorithms for completing the Rubik's Cube. We have the traditional 3 x 3 cube and even have a 5 x 5 challenge! Join the cubing club!
