In this lesson, from ReadWriteThink, students work in small groups over a period of 1-2 days to create board games that review elements from novels. The game must include questions about the novel and detailed instructions on how to play. After creating the games, students spend a day playing one another's games and evaluating each other and themselves. Students are then given the opportunity to revise their games and their directions.
