Scope & Sequence

Description:

Whyville.com is the only learning-based virtual world in existence for boys and girls from around the world. Created by scientists and educators from the California Institute of Technology, Whyville seeks to educate its users about a widespread variety of subjects, including math, science, art, writing, and literature, while providing a social environment that fosters cooperation, learning, and entertainment. After nine years of creating countless educational games and activities, Whyville has built a challenging, interactive, and fun curriculum that it hopes to share with teachers and educators from around the world. The attached teaching guides are Whyville's ideas for activities that can be discussed within a classroom environment. While these guides do not cover every aspect of the commuunity (exploring is half the fun!), Whyville hopes that they will give each teacher a good start to introducing their class to the fun and excitement that can be found inside Whyville. Whyville also hopes that posting these guides to Curriki will generate a level of discussion which will allow Whyville to improve its site and the resources it makes available to its teachers. Whyville encourages any and all feedback and submissions. Whyville will be frequently adding new teaching guides and other updates, so check back often for the latest!
