4th and 5th graders played a talk-heavy board game during class
As a special event for the class just before Halloween, in the last 45 minutes of class we played 2 rounds of Lupus in Tabula (also known as Werewolf or Mafia) all in Italian.
We had 14 kids from 4th, 5th an a few 6th grade special guests.
Playing board games engages kids in a fun way, in particular “Lupus in Tabula” is a hidden-role game, where villagers need to discuss and try to deduct who are the werewolves. Once a person is accused, they have the opportunity of giving a speech do defend themselves.
You tend to get quite creative in your talking to avoid being lynched by an angry mob!
