I bought an iPad for my wife, and loaded it with Plants vs. Zombies.
My son seems to love the game more than her. During dinner tonight, I decided to ask him a question out of the blue.
“How much sun does it cost to deploy a Doom Shroom in the daytime?”
“The Doom Shroom costs 125 suns and you need a Coffee Bean to wake it up. That costs 75 suns. So you need 200 suns. Easy.”
He got the math right and the strategy right. Not bad for a kid who’s just beginning the second grade.
Now if only school can capture his interest like that video game.
