This month I wanted to share some information about the Fortnite video game. My first introduction to the game was seeing students perform the dances that they learned in the video! Fortnite has taken off within the last few years and many parents have no idea what it is truly about. Please visit this page from Common Sense Media which provides a brief, yet informative synopsis of this game and read the exerpt below:
"The Fortnite frenzy seemed to come out of nowhere -- almost as if it dropped from a party bus in the sky. And now many parents are taking notice of this rollicking game where players fight to the death. With Fortnite's millions of players and sudden success, you might be wondering: What's it all about -- and is it OK for my kids? This survival-action game is a bit like what you'd get if you combined a sandbox-building game like Minecraft with an action shooter like Call of Duty. On one hand, it's getting major points with kids and parents alike for building teamwork and thoughtful collaboration. On the other hand, it's a combat-based game with tons of guns and violence."
