Ever-popular, board games can be an ideal teaching tool. In Stories on Board : Creating Board Games from Favorite Tales, award-winning storyteller Dianne de Las Casas shows how it's done, allowing students to create their own board games with a unique method that integrates learning and fun.

With Stories on Board , students read and listen to popular folktales, analyze the structure of the story through story mapping, and then create a board game based on their analysis, engaging their aural, visual, and tactile skills. The lesson culminates in a Game Day in which the students play each other's games. The technique is a great way to introduce a unit on folktales, covering language arts and social studies.
