Cardboard Dreams

I’m starting a cardboard arcade project in the lab next month. I’ll be at FETC in Orlando next week, so I started introducing my classes to Caine’s Arcade today.

If you haven’t seen the video yet, it is well worth watching! I watched it with all six of my classes today. I almost have it memorized.

I picked up some cardboard clip art last night and put together some graphic organizers and planning sheets. My students have big plans already! I can’t wait to see what they put together when we make our own cardboard arcade.


  1. The 2nd grade TAG class in my pod did this project and I was extremely impressed! I believe every child should see this! I can't wait to see what your students come up with.

  2. WOW! I just watched both videos. Can't wait to see how this plays out!! :) Erin

  3. What a great idea! I cried when I saw the videos the first time. My first year teaching, the entire staff got new desks. My little ninjas and I rescued the giant boxes from the trash and made space shuttles. Best quarter ever:). Good luck! Take lots of pictures!
