Christmas Game
Fun for that three weeks between holidays

from Brenda Harp

Christmas Project: Students design a brand new board game using all of the information from the chapter we are studying. I give them the main ideas and they must research the info. We go over all of the important facts that must be included on the gameboard and then they design the game, draw and color it on a poster, and write a set of rules for the game. Designing a box for the game is optional and earns extra points.

A couple of days before the test, we have game day. We spread out all of the games on the gym floor and in groups of 4 play each other's games. This serves as a review for the test since all of the boards have the same information on them.

Good two grade project and they work on the boards in class since it only requires a poster or smaller board.
