Activity Number 18 - Design A Board Game

game boardHere is a chance to have some fun with all the weather knowledge your students have accumulated during their time as Sky Watchers.

Working in teams, have your students design a board game to teach their classmates about weather -- the more creative, the better! For example, they could make jeopardy-type questions in categories such as severe weather, weather in song titles, or historic storms. The most knowledgeable player gains the most points and wins.

Or they may create a game similar to Snakes and Ladders using tornadoes, downbursts, and blizzards. A player who lands on one of these severe weather squares must be able to answer a weather trivia question correctly to proceed -- answer it wrong and the storm blows you back several squares on the board. The first player to travel all the way across the board wins.
