The Story of the “Tour the Cell” This is what makes your game interesting. Think about games you played when you were young. What was your favorite game? What is your child’s favorite game? What about the “story” of the game makes children want to play it? Your story should tie everything together -- the purpose of your game, what they are going to learn, and why they should want to play the game. Look at the sample games to see their stories.

Game Directions The goal of the game is to test your knowledge on cell organelles with multiple choice questions. To play the game you have to answer a cell questions correctly. Go to slide 5 and click the question that you would like to answer. If you get the question correct you then roll the dice and move that number of spaces. If you get the question wrong you wait till your next turn to try again. To win the game you have to be the first player to get outside of the cell on the game board. Return
Game Preparation • Game board: Print out slide 6 on heavy stock paper to use as the game board. • Game Pieces: Print out slide 7 (on the same kind of stock paper) and cut out each piece individually for every person playing the game. Each person should have one game piece. Home Page
