In the assignment, students are given a set of instructions from any game. They are to use just the instructions to determine how to play the game.
After analyzing existing game instructions, students are to create their own game with their group using only 2 dice and a deck of cards. They are to write instructions for their game using necessary text features to ensure understanding.
Students then rotate, playing all games using only the instructions given. Groups are then evaluated based on the group's ability to play and understand the game based on the instructions given.
This lesson requires students to analyze text, text features, and use their inferring skills to comprehend non-fiction, instructional text.
