Hello again families!
Today we want to share with you a board game that 6th graders have been playing with in English class. It is called: The world.
In the game, you have some seconds to pay attetion and memorize facts about a country. At the beginning we started the game having 25 seconds, but in the last round we played having 10 or 5 seconds! Some examples of the facts that you have to study in the picture are the flag, the capital city, the typical food, a famous animal that lives there, a famous building… In the other part of the card there are 8 questions related to these facts.
Then, you pass the card to another player and roll the die. In the die, it can appear a number from 1 to 8. Then, you must answer the appropriate question. You can’t look at the card to answer it, here you have to prove all the memory you have!!!
If the answer is correct, you keep the card and if it’s incorrect, you return it to the Brainbox.
The player that at the end of the game has more cards, wins.
Here you have some pictures while 6th graders were playing it:
As you can see, it’s a fun game and while you’re playing it you’re learning a lot of facts about the amazing countries we can find around the world.
See you soon families!
