Preparation

Gather materials for each student to complete the Post-Game Assessment, and make copies of the Motion Force Board Game Design Sheet and Scoring Rubric. Display the KWL Chart from the Pre-Assessment.

GAME PLAY!

It’s time for students to play Motion Force again. Students can play individually or continue the game they began with their partners. As they play, ask students to think about how they might redesign Motion Force as a board game. How would their version be different from the current version? How would it be the same?

Post-Game Assessment Activity: Design a Motion Force Board Game

Review the Board Game Design Requirement Sheet and the Scoring Rubric with students. Address questions as needed. If time allows, students can play their board games in small groups, taking turns with each person’s game.

Wrap-Up Activity: Completing the Group KWL Chart

Refer students to the KWL Chart from the Pre-Assessment. Review the first two columns, and ask students to think about whether they learned anything about what they wrote in the second column. Did they learn anything that they did not list in this column? How does what they learned in the unit compare to what they wrote in the first column? Complete the final column as a class.
