5th Graders Create Board Games and 3-D Playing Pieces
As the culminating activity following their study of Realistic Fiction, fifth grade students designed and created board games based upon novels read in their Literature Circles. Each game had to include the characters, setting, and plot of the books. Directions were written based upon guidelines learned in class.
This year the students integrated technology into the project! Guided by Mrs. Thompson, the students each used the 3-D printer in Technology Class to create their own playing pieces.
After presenting their projects to their classmates, the fun began when groups exchanged and played each other's games!
