This is a very fun activity that my students love! If you are familiar with my Renaissance Centers Unit (https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Renaissance-Centers-Unit-Plan-1093774), it is very similar...if not better!
This activity is extensive and easily adaptable for all levels of students!
