Overview
Mermaids, treasure, hidden caves and amazing underwater creatures. The deep sea will inspire students in our game and creative writing workshop with Press Start Hong Kong where students both write to play and play to write. Students work on different types of writing as they play a customised version of the board game "Deep Sea Adventure". On some days, students research and write about sea creatures and invent important underwater places for use in the game, while on other days, students play the game and write about what happens on their deep sea adventures.
