Habitat Board Game: Jumanji

After reading the book Jumanji, have kids invent their own magical board game, constructed out of paint chips or construction paper. Divide children into groups or work on a game board as a class. Encourage them to design a game that revolves around a different habitat other than the jungle / rainforest (such as a desert or ocean theme). Once they decide on their theme, they'll decorate their board to go along with it. Also, have them come up with a creative name for their game that goes along with their theme. 

Along with their game, have each group collaborate on instructions. Together, they'll write specific rules that players must follow, just like Jumanji's instructions in the book. Now, roll the dice and play! Let your imaginations run wild!
