Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Extension: Younger students can create a simple race track where they roll dice and move cars or small objects around the track. Older students can incorporate direction cards, special move cards, challenges, dice, etc. Family Why: Creating a board game builds creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration skills. Playing board games develops social skills: taking turns, teamwork, and sportsmanship. Please encourage your students to create their own board game. They can work with a family member or independently.
