Do you want to let your students have some much needed fun, but you don't have any time to waste? Try this creative and entertaining way to turn any ordinary assignment into the BEST DAY EVER, all while students continue to LEARN.
Simply print out the "Turn Your Floor into a Giant Game Board" sheets on card stock, laminate them, along with some sheets of colored construction paper, and use them to turn your classroom or hallway floor into a giant game board by affixing them to the floor with Painter's tape. Grab a dice, some game pieces (I use students' shoes.), put students into groups or pairs, and then give them whatever assignment you would be working on anyway. After students complete each question or task on their assignment, they bring it to you to check. If the answer is correct, student teams get to take their turn on the giant game board. If the answer is incorrect, student teams will go back to their seats to try again.
With simple "win a prize" spaces and "go back" spaces along the game board, students will LOVE this activity that encourages them to work hard on their assignment and lets them get out of their seats and get some of that energy out. Your students will be begging to play this game over and over again. You can use this game board for virtually any assignment across various grade levels for years to come. There is also a blank sheet for easy customization.
