    So, I am working on a matholoply game board. I have it all completed, but I just need to come up with names for each spot. There are a total of 20 spots the students can land on. I already have the corner pieces named, I just need names for the rest. I am thinking of names that will be easy for second all the way to sixth can understand. So, it can't be names like, Exponential Blvd.

    I was thinking of using shape names (Pyramid Place, Squareville, etc) but I want to ask you guys if you have any cute ideas here. :)

    I'd go with geometric shapes like you're thinking
    Sphere Street
    Prism Place
    Octagon Avenue
    Hexagon Street
    and so on

    also how about Pi Place, Angle Avenue, Axis Avenue, Parallel Place, Point Place, Ray Way.

    Um, I think that's what I got for now. What do you think?

    It'll be pretty similar to homeworkopoly. I teach math only and next year plan to implement a form of math workshop. So, when the group I am not working with go to do their independent work, one of their must do Menu items must be to play mathopoly. Each day they will roll once (two dice). Wherever they land they will take a math problem and tape it onto their math journal to solve. I'll post pictures to make this more clear. Plus, I'm still playing around with this idea.
