Trading Card World-Building

2 Hour Experience at Your Home

In this game play experience, kids will design their very own trading card ecosystem (similar to Pokemon and other trading card-based games). They will make their own plants, animals, foods, cultures, and people to live in their fictional environments. World-building games teach kids how parts of an ecosystem are interdependent, and also encourage creativity by allowing for entirely new rules different from those we take for granted in our own world (like gravity, for instance!).

An ideal experience for a small group, kids will kick things off with an intro exercise. A quick overview of how biological communities establish and interact. Chazz will share examples of pre-made cards, and the group will get started with designing and building their own environments. They can be based on real-life ecosystems found on Earth, or totally fictional!

For older children, a competitive, game-play system will be developed and incorporated. Kids will play against one another for the ultimate bragging rights!

What Parents Are Saying

We LOVED everything about Grasshopper! The customer service experience was exceptional! I felt like so much intentionality was taken to ensure that the activity would be both age appropriate and fun for my kids. Our experience leader was so easy going and chatted with the kids during the experience, and really took the time to engage and get to know them. We are definitely going to be using Grasshopper again! Thank you!

Grasshopper offered my daughter an opportunity to learn in a vibrant, fun setting that was continuously customized for her attention span and interests. Her Grasshopper teacher was fun, engaging and supremely personable. She took the time to get to know my daughter before diving into anything. I felt more than comfortable leaving my daughter in such capable hands…and love that she truly learned some new things from the experience. We will be using Grasshopper regularly to broaden her horizons and expose her to new concepts in a safe and compelling way. The icing on the cake is that the experience took place in our home, at a time that was convenient for us!

Our Grasshopper experience was amazing! I have four very curious kids at different ages with different interests, and the experience had all four of them engaged the whole time. Also, as an educator, I was very impressed with how the teacher led the program. She obviously knew what she was doing, and the minute she left, my kids were asking for another experience.
