Stick Around is a fabulous new app by the creators of Explain Everything. This app allows you to play, design and share customized puzzles. The app comes with several preprogramed puzzles and lots of templates to help you start creating your own puzzles. This app can be used for any subject matter. Your puzzles will be as creative as you make them! Students love this app and the self checking feature.
Share the puzzles you create with students via QR code, Google Drive, Dropbox...and many other ways! Check out the video below for an idea of what Stick Around can do for you!
I used Stick Around with a 4th grade class at Altara Elementary this week. I linked the puzzles I made in Stick Around to QR codes and placed those QR codes around the classroom. The students used iPad minis to scan the QR code and open the puzzles. After solving one puzzle they would find the next QR code, scan it, and solve the next puzzle. This activity was self guided and self paced. The students loved it! It was a great way to review concepts they learned throughout the year and ask questions when they needed help. You can scan the QR codes below for a sample of the puzzles I created.
