This assignment is a small group project to be done after reading the novel. It can take anywhere from 4 days to two week, depending on how you structure it or modify it. (When I do it I take about two weeks.)
In essence, students design and build a boardgames based on a theme in the novel.
Students are given a list of themes to choose from in the assignment description, which of course you can enhance. All details are stated, such as neatness, a clear theme, professionalism, teamwork expectations and scoring, and a grading rubric.
Also included are questions (and answers) for the games if students are struggling in creating their own. Or, you might do what I do with my lower group, which is I print the questions, cut them out, and provide them to the students.
Also, a graph for grading students three times via observation on their teamwork is included.
As always, if you purchase anything from me, I am happy to email you the same item as a Word document so you can individualize it to your classroom.
