DIY Penguin Board Game

imageLearning through play is a fun and effective way for kids to retain knowledge without even realizing it. And a great way to learn through play is by playing games. We’ve been studying penguins this month, so to practice what we were learning I created a homemade penguin trivia game.

I began by creating the game board. I used a piece of foam core poster board, but you could also use a piece of cardboard, regular poster board, or a few pieces of construction paper taped together. I painted the foam core blue and placed other bits of white foam core on top to create icebergs. I didn’t glue these down so we could change it up and use the board for other games in the future.

Next, I created our playing cards. I made these fish cards to write our penguin trivia questions on. If you would like to use this printable for your own penguin board game, just save the above picture and print!

The object of the game is to move your penguin around the board by answering questions and thereby catching the fish. We used penguin trivia questions to recap what we learned and make it interesting for all of our family.

imageEach player draws one fish card on their turn and hands it to another player to read. If they answer the question correctly, they get to move ahead one space and the play continues with the next person taking their turn. If they answer it incorrectly, they must stay where they are.

R had a ton of fun moving his choice of penguin around the board. He was very proud of himself when he answered correctly and he delighted in the competition. He loves penguins and the Safari Ltd. Penguins TOOB was an excellent addition to our learning and play.

You don’t have to limit yourself to trivia questions! This penguin board game would be an excellent addition to a polar unit study in a variety of ways. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

  • Teach younger children colors or shapes.
  • Playfully practice the alphabet.
  • Have fun with sight words.
  • Solve math problems.

This is a reason why Craigs List Educational Forum is not as some say gross and irrelevant. Our little Craigs List educational form has gotten beat up by one or two people who refuse to log in and instead post gross things to in some way be anarcist like.
However, In the news, I am posting today,
Just Google Poway School District Bad Loan.......
You will see a school district playing games with tax payer monies.
You will see the stupidity of a group of adults running a school district who approved a 40 year loan for one million dollars, who have no problem in asking that the school district pay ten times that , yes ONE BILLION DOLLARS in year 2042.
This is a case where the local people around the school district asked the school district to not raise...
