Game On! This Media Literacy unit is fun, highly motivational, and broken down into manageable steps for every type of learner in your class. Chances are it will be one of the most memorable projects of the year! They will love creating a unique board game with a theme that they are passionate about. The end product is a fully functional (often store worthy!) board game that they get to take home and play with friends and family.

This tried and true unit was created to help busy primary teachers cover Media Literacy in a fun and easy way at any point in the school year. Media Literacy Fun for Primary Grades: Create a Board Game can be completed in less than a week, or over several. The choice is up to you!

This unit works exceptionally well at the beginning or end of the year. Why not invite older or younger Learning/Reading Buddies to play? Feedback forms are included for this purpose.
