Part of Lesson Plan: Buttons 2: Dungeon
Activity Overview / Details
Show students several versions of the Dungeon project (see attached files). Once you've done this lesson a few times, you will have some awesome examples, too! Showing students that they have the opportunity to personalize this project really gets them interested, and many of them will become quite creative with it.
Tell them that they need to roughly duplicate the first THREE frames-- the Title page, the Intro, and the first Room with three doors-- but that the rest is up to them. Minimum projects will run about 15-20 frames; larger ones can run 50-100.
The folder of Dungeon images is just for a guideline. These are not useable as images in Flash because you can't "ungroup" them in order to create buttons. Students can, however, open them all up in presentation style (e.g. in Preview) to view as templates for their own work.
More advanced students will have fun adding tweens and other animated elements into their Dungeon-- let them! This is a great project for differentiation.
