Matthew J. Kuss Middle School

January Highlight of the Month  

Body System Game Board Project



We've all had the experience of playing a game that brought us hours of enjoyment. These days, board games seem to have taken a back seat to video games and the internet. Have you ever wished you could change the rules?Have you ever thought of combining different ideas from your favorite sports,video games, cartoon characters, board games, etc., to create something completely new, entertaining, and fun? Now is your chance!

8G, H, and I science classes at Kuss Middle School will become board game designers. Their task is to create a game based on a system of the body of their choice. After detailed research, planning, and designing, the students will have a finished product of game that others can enjoy and learn something new about the human body systems.
