Create Your Own Board Game Project | Fun No Prep Activity | End of the Year

In stock
Product Details

Unleash your students' creativity by having them create their own board game. This no-prep resource can be used in so many different ways - novel studies, test prep, enrichment, content review, or assessment - just to name a few.

Students don't just create any board game - they need components that go with typical board games, which is where the critical thinking aspect comes in. They will write instructions, create game pieces, write content questions, and try out each other's games to make sure they work. This is a project students will ask to do again!
