Design an original board game to use math skills.
Ask students what their favorite board games are. Which ones use math? Here is a chance for students to create an original game. Design it to challenge math skills!
Students groups determine a theme. What math skills and facts are to be featured? How will players move forward? Encourage students to plan some frustrating pitfalls in the game. Figure out how players will pay for their mistakes, too. Come up with some great game strategies!
Student teams invent their own imaginative board, game pieces, and rules. Using Crayola Colored Pencils, sketch a spiral of connected blocks on foam board. Begin in the center. End the spiral near the outer edge of the board. With Crayola Washable Markers, write START on the last block.
Students draw a symbol, number, or small picture in each block to match the theme and strategies. Design and color the rest of the board.
Create unique game pieces with Crayola Model Magic. Sculpt landmarks such as bridges, wind tunnels, or trees.
Students cut out paper cards with Crayola Scissors. Write directions on each card, such as Move 1 step forward, Move 4 steps back, Go to the red bridge, or Lose a Turn. Make dice with Crayola Model Magic.
To play, players choose a card (or roll the dice) in turn and move accordingly. The first player to reach the center of the board wins!
