In an effort to make MAP practice exciting and engaging, students in Linda Meckem’s 5th grade class at Partridge Elementary chose a reading standard and created a board game as part of their monthly problem-based learning project.  

Students created 25 questions/answers based on their chosen reading standard, typed up rules and directions for their games and decorated their file folder boards.  

“The level of critical thinking and engagement during this project has been amazing!” Meckem said. “Students loved playing each other’s games, all while reviewing grade level skills for the upcoming MAP test.”
