Educational Board Games in the Classroom

Educational board games have received a bad rap over the years. And rightly so–they tend to be nothing more than review questions or flash cards without much thought to creativity, originality, or real engagement.

Roll the dice, answer the questions, be the first to get to the end, and you win the game.

Creating a really good educational board game can be tricky. A delicate balance exists between ensuring the game’s educational component is solid and maintaining the entertainment value of the game so students don’t tune out!
