Motivate your students and elicit creativity by creating board games! After concentrating on certain weaknesses with my ELA classes, one way I review the material is by creating board games instead of regular old study guides. This is a highly self-motivating activity which takes approximately 2-3 weeks, 1 hour a day - that includes time for the students to play each other's games. Included is an explanation of what to do, a list of guiding questions, a rubric, pictures of final products, and a very short PPT for when students are writing rules and game questions. Students are responsible for bringing in all materials unless you have them. Trust me - they will love this! Focus on any number of topics such as prefixes and suffixes, Latin roots, story elements, vocabulary, or grammar. It will also work in any subject area. Be sure to assign each group a different topic, so all games are new and original!
