Old-school board game gets top marks from teachers, parents
After playing the game with her family, Hamblett was convinced Tri-Cross would encourage high level thinking skills and problem solving. And unlike computer games, it would also encourage more one-on-one interaction.
“I think it’s a wonderful way for kids to develop skills we no longer employ as much,” Hamblett said. “The game really is a fun way to encourage kids to strategize and to ponder possibilities, and that’s really the goal of the gifted program.”
