Play & Write: Deep Sea Adventure
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. Each day features different types of writing as students play a customised version of the board game "Deep Sea Adventure". On some days, students design and write about characters and objects as components for use in the game, while on other days, students play the game and write about what happens on their deep sea adventures.
