This spring students in Mrs. Gilbert’s ELA 6 class presented their knowledge of the quarter 3 book project by designing a board game. The 6th graders created their board games by using the characters in their book as “the pieces” of the game. They then used the setting of the book as the background of the game board. The plot of the book was demonstrated through the moves of the game. Students included at least 25 moves and the instructions explaining how to play the game.
The 6th grade Mountaineers showed excellent creativity and knowledge of their books through this project based learning activity.
