This project is the BEST! Students design an original game in groups with obstacles to overcome to win. Game questions are based on content taught in your class and/or other classes. Can also use after a novel or novels. Game should have an objective: Get to the goal line, escape before you are caught, get enough supplies to survive etc. Obstacles will make it hard to get to the goal. Players can earn money, buy items they need, lose turns, change places on the board.
Game board does not have to fit in pizza box. Store items needed to play in plastic baggies with name of game on EVERYTHING! Keep one or more as samples or take pictures for next year to model project. I use this for end-of-year project.
