There are 3 printable games in this set of Back School Board Games Freebies! You can choose the game that best suits your students or you can use all three games if you like.
This is the Getting to Know You board game. In this game players move around the board and land on pictures as they do. For each picture they refer to the key to find out what they will share with the other players. For example, if they land on a lighthouse, they tell the others somewhere they would like to live. If they land on the cake, they tell something that they can cook!
This game is called My Favorites. In this game the children move one counter to the center and back to the start again. As they do they tell the others their favourite things, e.g. favourite place to play, favourite fruit, favourite season etc. There is no winner or loser as they work as a team to get to the center and back again to the start.
The Tell Me About game has the players tell things about them like, their favourite movie, something that makes them happy, something they would like to learn etc.
This is a great game to get the kids really thinking and sharing information on a deeper level!
