Lesson Plans for Teachers and Parents



A plethora of lesson plans based off of best selling board games!


Why do we suggest you play games as an educational tool?

  • Deal creatively with conflict situations and develop a stronger sense of identity.
  • Improved attitude and motivation
  • Improved social and communication skills.
  • Improved ability to deal with feelings, take responsibility, and think creatively and positively.

But it isn’t just that. Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are met through a wide variety of games. Like information fluency, play is a process skill, not a traditional classroom content area.

A wonderful document which highlights what we at Tabletop Gaming Center are trying to foster is “Using Boardgames to Foster Critical Thinking and Communication Skills,” written by Greg Thatcher, MSPH, PhD at Fresno State University.
