Game Show

The PBL activity we started working on this week made students into network executives in charge of creating a new game show to review punctuation, literary devices, meaning of words, or parts of speech. We spent a few days researching, then we planned out the rules of our game. Today my little executives are designing the name/logo of their games using a paint program on the computer.
