This unit will show students how they take an idea from brainstorming to sketching to prototyping. Students will see how creative designs, unique logos, vivid color schemes, and celebrity endorsements can affect how many people may buy, sell, and play with board games. Students will explore two-dimensional (2-D) and three-dimensional (3-D) visualization processes and mediums by designing, developing, and building a board game. Students will design and create a game for the Happyland Toy Company, a fictitious board game company.
All units contain teacher background information, handouts, transparency masters, and a student packet
Each unit is designed to integrate mathematics and science with technology and take 8 to 10 days.
