I take the board games a step further and after reading the novel "A Lion to Guard Us" in third grade each team of 3 students creates a board game. They draw the board, create the questions, and decide on the rules.I meet with each team and help make the rules simple and easy to follow. I am always amazed at their creativity. After the final product is ready each team plays all of the other games and then we discuss the things we like about each game. They are still playing them months after the activity.
