"Poptropica is a massively multiplayer online game and virtual world, targeted at children ages 6 to 15, where players can travel, play games, compete in head-to-head competition, and communicate safely with each other. There is a role-playing component as players are encouraged to finish "island missions" and get medallions."

As we are missing a large percentage of our students today and it has been a couple weeks since I have given you a mental health day, enjoy!

Mr C, wonderful suggestion to give your students a 'mental holiday' I am sure that they would welcome it. Poptropica is interesting as we've had a debate here in the classroom and school about whether it is educational. We decided that it was as a result of the problem solving but some people (teachers mainly) I think were not still convinced! I would also like to thank you for making yourself available to talk to the group of teachers that you spoke to last week it was enjoyed by them very much and I know that they appreciated your words of wisdom.
