Challenge your students to design and construct a board game. Students begin by sketching and describing their game (the rules, how many can play, why it would be fun, etc.). Students can continue to design the game mechanically or use their desktop publishing software and computer.
Next, students use the products below and materials to build a prototype. Students evaluate the game by playing it. With feedback from participants, students should make any adjustments needed to make the game a success. To take the activity further, students can rank the games and choose the best game to try and market. Grades 2-12.
