Crayon Physics Deluxe

Crayon Physics Deluxe.

We are getting ready to teach a 3 week unit using Sugar’s Physics, but my son just introduced me to Crayon Physics. Sugar’s Physics gives users a completely blank slate; Crayon Physics gives user a challenge, then another, then another.  We need to help our kids go from zero to 60 in three weeks; Crayon Physics starts at 30 and walks kids up to 60 pretty easily.  Sugar Physics is constructivist all the way down; Crayon Physics is scaffolded constructivism. Sugar Physics is FOS; Crayon Physics is $20.

What’s the right mix?
