Minchinbury PS board games

Minchinbury PS designed and made board games based on different tourist attractions in Australia e.g. Ayers Rock, the Great Barrier Reef, Mount Kosciusko. The games were full of trivia and were were trialled with younger students who showed great interest.

Students from Rooty Hill Technology High School worked with each of the primary schools to design, make and evaluate learning tools that are fun and interactive, and that can be used by teachers as a resource when teaching the content of Stage 3 syllabuses. Students from each of the primary schools produced somewhat different types of learning tools.

This project was STUDENT CENTRED and teacher facilitated.
