Eloosis: The Scientific Method Game
Eloosis is a game in which students make repeated observations in pursuit of discovering a pattern.
The game uses a standard deck of cards.
Students lay down one card at a time, and are told whether or not that card fits a pattern known only to you (e.g., even-odd-even-odd).
Use scientific language like "collecting data" and "hypothesis testing" as they play the game.
Require students analyze the data they collect and make inferences to generate hypotheses.
After several rounds, students will shift from caring about "winning" to caring about testing and building their knowledge base.
