Academic Games at Edison, Oh My!

    Hurrah!  Academic Games makes a come back to Edison!

   The Edison Tigers Academic Games Team is Back!!!  Thanks to our Wonderful, 5th Grade Math Teacher, Mr. Pierce.  Mr. Pierce has taken the charge and actively engages our Edison Tigers in the process of out-thinking other players in Mathematics, Language Arts, and Social Studies.  Through competition, our Edison Tigers are encouraged and motivated to sharpen their skills in order to gain a competitive edge over their peers.  Our students participate in a series of Academic Game Competitions at local and state levels resulting in a national championship tournament in late April each school year.  The Academic Games tournaments challenges students to use higher order thinking skills and players receive recognition and awards in the same way that sports champions are honored. Academic Games makes learning fun!  GO Edison Tigers!  Let’s hear that roar and get that score!
