Lumiarpoly is a board game created through a project that was developed by F1 students. The name was chosen by the learners and was based on the game Monopoly. At the board, the student’s neighborhoods, the tourist and historical spots of the city, and the transportation system gained life and allowed the study of the city, its geography, and its history. It was an interdisciplinary project, and the students developed their spatial orientation and laterality, they learned how to draw the wind rose, they learned about the history of the city, as well as a bit of the colonization of Brazil and Porto Alegre. Through the game, they developed writing skills, composing its manual and rules, as well as math skills, by developing the concepts of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, so they would be able to calculate their change and profit. The students learned about their neighborhoods and how they are formed, what is the difference between avenues and streets, why houses have numbers, why the numbers are even or odd, why the streets have different names, and why sometimes those names come from important people. More than roll the dice and play on the board, they localized their own houses, that after being photographed, became part of the board, just as the routes commonly used on their routines.
How it works
On the board, the student quarters, the city's tourist and historical points, as well as the existing means of transport, came to life and allowed the study of the city, its history and geography.
Se constituindo como projeto interdisciplinar, os estudantes trabalharam habilidades de orientação espacial, lateralidade, aprenderam a desenhar rosa dos ventos, conheceram a história da cidade, um pouco da colonização do Brasil e de Porto Alegre.
Through the game, they developed writing skills, writing their manual and rules, as well as math skills, developing ideas of addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, in order to calculate change and profit.
They learned about neighborhoods and how they are formed, what is the difference between avenue and street, because houses are divided into numbers, because these numbers are even and odd, because streets have different names and often names of important people.
Learning and reality
More than throwing the dice and walking with the pawn, they located their own squares, which, when photographed, were part of the board, as well as the paths taken from one point to another in the city in their routines and experiences.
