After reading a mystery story, students create a board game based on the book. They may work individually or in small groups. The first two pages provide a space for students to sketch their game board and then decide on the object of the game, materials needed, rules, etc. The third page is to be used as a final copy, "Directions" to go with the finished games. Students use poster board or other available materials to create their game boards. Afterwards, celebrate the end of the unit by playing one another's games!
