@S created a game using stones from the ‘loose parts’ collection.
Next, she decided to make a chess board game. @S began by making a big square, including lines for playing the game.
She made triangles and circles that represent the two teams.
Then, she made poster to inform others about the ‘rules of the game’ and instructions on how to play the game.
@S “The paper around the game is because we don’t want the pieces to go outside.”
Before sharing the game, @S said “We have to test before we really played.” So she played the game with Ms. Tina and created a video to show her friends how to play the game.
Step 1: Put the two circles here.
Step 2: Put the triangles here.
Step 3: Put the two black circles here.
Step 4: The people don’t want to go outside so we need this paper here.
Step 5: If he goes outside he cannot go inside.
@S played the game with Ms. Jiao.
