This product is designed as a culminating activity for a novel or other piece of literature. Students design a board game based on the theme and content of the novel and write detailed directions to accompany their game. They are encouraged to work cooperatively and get creative in order to make a game that they and their classmates will enjoy playing. This open-ended activity can be adjusted, thereby allowing you to differentiate based on the needs of your students. Includes directions and planning sheet as well as a rubric.
