Science Curriculum Review Board Games {Student Created}

At the end of the year, I had students create their own board games in small groups for the purpose of reviewing for the CRTs {Utah's end of year test}. Their only requirement was to have at least 5 questions from each of the 6 topics {water cycle, weather, fossils, rocks and minerals, Utah's environments, soil} we studied this year within their game. They were free to choose how they would create and run their game - complete with game pieces, question cards, and instructions. Students definitely enjoyed reviewing for the CRTs this way rather than through lecture!
