Aleph Playground: Hebrew Through Roblox
Aleph Playground is a metaverse and open-exploration space existing in Roblox designed by educator, Roni Leibovitch. This space is designed for students age 8-10 who seek a positive, and immersive experience for learning Hebrew and basic 3D skills. The teacher will guide students toward making new connections with one another, learn to recognize the shapes and sounds of Hebrew letters, and discover the meanings of new Hebrew words. No prior knowledge of Hebrew necessary.
Class 1: Scavenger Hunt
22 Hebrew letters are hiding throughout the world. In an untimed challenge, students search Aleph Playground to find every letter. Students who complete this challenge receive a Happy Aleph badge.
Class 2: Celebrate Your Hebrew Name
Students color and draw their favorite animal, flowers, food, and shapes which begin with their respective letter(s). Advanced students may opt to create their full name. Aleph Playground magically transforms your letters into the Aleph Gallery. Students who complete this activity receive a Happy Name badge.
Class 3: Designer Challenge
Students receive a 3D template and guidance on how to paint their shirt, and advanced students can design their entire outfit. Students who complete this activity get a Happy Designer/Fashion badge.
Class 4: Dress Your Robloxian and Happy Fashion Show
In this class, students learn how to upload their design as a metaverse wearable, and wear their unique Happy Name on their avatar. Students can wear their creation as a keepsake from Aleph Playground. Students describe their design, and share their creative expression. Students who complete all four experiences get their name added to the Aleph Playground leaderboard and a Happy Hebrew badge.
