Research indicates that quality, interactive learning games can have a positive impact on student learning, creativity, and development of thinking skills. In this session, we share ideas for incorporating board game creation with gifted and talented students. Students were provided with an assignment to create a board or card game that teaches content of their choice. Specifics regarding assignment descriptions, rubrics, student product samples, and learning outcomes are shared.
