Yep. My 2nd grader was expected to create, design, make all the rules and actually make a board game for the dreaded state CRCT as a review game, along wit the rest of the 2nd grade. His teacher was helpful enough to show past examples - yeah, like the parents didn't do those start to finish!
We made Bear decide what kind of game he wanted, what the rules were, then we helped him plan the layout, decide all the colors, etc....then Hubby and I built the thing.
We started with a $3 Disney Princess Junior Monopoly board bought at a consignment sale. Bear was NOT amused til I promised there would be NO princess related items in the game.
From this to start with....
OMG what a project!!! For a 2nd grader no less! Insanity! And YES that's a lot of exclamation points!!!! It's due by Thursday, wish us luck!
