Product Description
This project involves students working independently or in a small cooperative group to develop a board game about a particular subject matter. I am a science teacher and have used this as a review at the end of a unit and at other appropriate times, but I have developed it generically enough that it is useful for ANY subject matter. Students (and you!) are limited only by your imagination in how far to take this. It is possible to develop a game on a single piece of paper, or to go as far as a 3-D game or even a computer based game. The idea is to get kids applying what they have learned in NEW ways, and using critical thinking skills we know they have.

So often students think of learning as "work" and approach it in a negative or unenthusiastic manner. Reframing the learning process as a "game" can help alleviate some of the stress that accompanies the learning process, particularly for reluctant learners. You will hopefully find, as I have, that when given appropriate instructions and adequate freedom to imagine, develop and create, student work can be quite impressive.

Reflection is an important component of the learning process. Even though students may work with a partner or small group to develop the project, you should have them reflect independently on what they learned and experienced in this adventure. This activity is designed to incorporate multiple components of learning that are research based and recommended.

I have included with this a generic description of the project that you can customize, a grading rubric and the individual student reflection page. Best wishes for engaged and inspired students in your classroom!
