As an assessment for Chapters 1 and 3 in our Space Unit, the students created a board game in groups of 2 or 3. However, before each game was made, the groups had to complete their research. This research was based on all of the information located in Chapters 1 and 3. They were also responsible for telling me how that information was to be included in the board game. The games were graded based on a rubric agreed upon by the 6th grade team.
The students found that it was pretty easy to create the actual board and pieces, but writing the directions was difficult. What a great way to work on our collaboration and communication skills! Scroll to see pictures of the all the groups and their board games.
