    Where can I find real game boards?

    I'm doing a project based learning project with my students and their project is for groups to create a board game. However, I want each group of students to create a nice sturdy game board that folds. Any ideas on where I can get these or make them?

    Fabulous site--thanks! Two projects I do every year with my class are making a board game and writing a story to turn into a comic book--this will make both projects much more professional-looking!

    I love the game board idea. What kind of game are they making? I think that would be really fun to do with history since it might help them remember the facts a little better. Does anyone else have to take a state mandated social studies test at the end of the year. We have to take ELA, Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies.

    Bare Books looks awesome! I enjoy making my own games for centers. These look like they will hold up better than poster board.

    I do boardgames once a year with my SS students. Last year I did it with Egypt, this year I was thinking Greece and Rome. The boards at the above site are beautiful, but I usually use file folders. I teach the students about Bloom's Taxonomy and tell them they have to have questions/answers/activities for each level. They create their questions first, I check them, then they design their board. It's always very popular!

    oh, and we test in SS

    Are these board games sturdy? In the past, I've used foam core and scored it to make it fold... I can't tell how thick these game boards are based on the description... this would save a lot of work though!! They're worth the $4? :)
