Through this project, students will learn to take an idea from inception to execution, and to collaborate with their peers in meaningful work that is fun and engaging. Making games lets kids take charge of the learning process by engaging their passion and vision to create a tangible, playable, end product. By designing a board game together, students take initiative, construct knowledge and grapple with problems, and learn design thinking and how an iterative process works. They also work collaboratively to share ideas, give feedback and succeed as a team.This project comes with 3 different levels (modified, on-level, and enriched) of the project, student expectation/choice boards, student rubric.
This is perfect for project based learning classrooms. This is a great 2nd semester project. (Took about 4 months to complete). Everything you need to get started and understand the project are in this download.
