Sometimes you set your class a challenge and think, “that will be worthwhile and build on student learning.” So when I asked my year 5 and 6 students to create a board game that would demonstrate their understanding of Justice issues, while developing their skills in decimals, percentage and fractions, I was astounded by the results. Not only was it engaging, but it required deep thinking and enriched their learning. The creativity and diversity of games was unbelievable.
Board Games feedback
Rosie-I created a game that was challenging, with simple questions. It levelled up, with a variety of easy and harder questions, so that everyone was involved. It was well set up. I worked on it every night for two weeks.
Bridie-The game was well set out, organised, easy to follow and challenging enough. My game included decimals which added to the thinking.
Connor- I included lots of questions on maths, fractions and decimals.
The games were fun and challenging. It made me think about what Justice issues there are in our world.
