In Wichita we have an annual celebration lasting over a week
called The Wichita River Festival. The event has many water sports,
music, hot air balloons, a treasure hunt, races of many kinds, etc.
One year I had students work in groups and create board games
to celebrate our city's festival. They could use local businesses or
organizations as sites on the board, etc. They also designed and
constructed the boxes for the board games. Games were judged on
design, creativity, "Playability", etc. Each group had to have others
play their games. They had to include a written, typed set of rules to
go with the game. Some groups designed pieces to move around the board
out of playdough type materials.
Kids who had never gone to River Festival Events before got
into participating. One more way to get students involved in positive
activities.....
