Group Roles & Tasks
Once students are grouped, they will need to choose roles: game board designer, note card maker, pieces organizer, and rule maker. These four jobs can be given to four different students or fewer students can share the jobs.
game board designer: The group should discuss what the game board should look like. The designer should plan, design and make the board. Any person in the group can help, but in the end the board game is this person's responsibility. Students can get ideas from commercial game boards on the market, but they should be creative with their design.
note card maker: This person is responsible that there are enough cards with questions for the game. All can help come up with questions, but making the cards is this person's responsibility.
pieces organizer: This person will need to gather or make all of the game pieces. This person must help write questions too because it is such a big job.
rule maker: This person will make the rules for the game. The rules should be typed and be clear to the players of the game. This person needs to help write questions for the game as well.
