We all know that engaging students is important. But do you ever struggle with unique ways to engage your students? I know I do. One night, while laying in bed, I came up with a fun idea for teaching certain concepts. Life-Size Game Boards. Pretty cool huh?
To make this happen, you will need to do a little prep. However, it will be very worth it!
Make sure you have large dice, cups and the board game tiles. (I linked my affiliate links for these in the preview and the actual product if you need them!)
Print the clip art people, laminate and cut them out. Using binder clips, clip them to the cups. (See example pictures.)
Lay out the game board tiles in any formation that looks like a game board.
Use masking tape or packing tape, tape the cards to the tiles.
Unlike my other games, there are no cards with this one just the poem. Make sure to print and laminate the poem.
Students will read the poem first, roll ONE die, and do the task on the board. If the student lands on a blank square, have them choose any task on the board to do. If the student gets it correct, they stay on the board. If the student misses, they go back to the beginning! The first student to the end wins!
I have done this game before, just not on a life-size game board until now!
(Note: Pictures in the preview and cover page are sample pictures of the vocabulary life-size game, but the concept is the same.)
