A Wrinkle in Time: The Board Game

Tackle some big questions about A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle with a board game project. As learners brainstorm for and complete their board games, they consider what helps and hinders Meg on her journey and why she succeeds in the end. For their games, pupils must include specific settings from the story. Once completed, small groups play the games, paying attention to what their classmates included. A board template is provided, but not required.
