Welcome to the “Portal Challenge”. Introduce and reinforce science/math concepts the fun way. The Portal Challenge gives teachers the opportunity to trigger students’ interest in STEM by combining their love of aliens, a chess like strategy game and grade level science/math curricula.
Enjoy this digital download. The package includes two, 42 alien hexagons templates (two sizes), a 11x17 Portal Challenge game board, game play rules, a dice template.
Use the dice template for math play or use grade level, standards based, science cards for science play. Purchase the science cards in my TPT store or you can create your own game question cards.
With each successful win, give students a token. Create a “Reward Bank” where students may cash in their tokens for prizes. Keep track of students successes on a goal chart or record results in their “Interactive Science Notebooks”. Stimulate critical thinking and meet Common Core science and math Standards. The game helps make math and science rigor fun. Enjoy!
