"Hello, everyone. I'm a 4th grade teacher who enjoys developing educational games for, and teaching programming to, my students. Although I've done a lot of work in Scratch (an educational programming language developed at MIT), I've been remaking my popular games in HTML5 with Javascript and Phaser.

Barnyard Roundup is a game to help develop perseverance, spatial awareness, and systematic problem solving.

The goal is to fill the pen completely with animals. Click an animal to pick it up. While carrying the animal, press space bar to rotate and the f-key to flip. There are 40 level, as well as a level code system so you can get back where you left off.

The project is published under a CC BY 4.0 license."
