I need a board game that will play through in approximately 1 hour, preferably less. It has to be "pretty" due to short attention span of students. I teach special education, with most students being in the ADD, ADHD category.
I currently implemented a reward system of placing students in various models of german WWII AFV's based on their grades. It's funny but they are working hard to be in the top tank which you can imagine which one that is. I never really expected the response that I got for such a silly idea.
This was the primary reason for wanting prints of the various vehicles in an earlier post.
So back to the board game. No more than an hour of game play, I cannot leave the game in place after class. These are Alternative Education students, gang types, and their ability to make things disappear from a room is beyond description.
Does not have to be WWII, but intial game should be since they are becoming familiar with equipment.
I do have them currently playing backgammon, chess, and stratego. They are allowed to either listen to classic books that I buy and dl to my mp3 player, or play games after independent work is completed.
It's to bad models are so expensive, or I would purchase models of vehicles and give them to the students at the end of the semester depending on how they did.
Any help appreciated.
