I put together this lesson and did it with one of my summer camps. It worked alright, but it was much more tedious than I hoped. This lesson seems to take more than 2 hours.
This is a lesson to play the board game Clue/Cluedo with the whole class.
I have an explanation ppt, "explanitory Cludo.ppt" that explains the vocab and how to play the game.
I have a couple game boards because the first attempt at making a game board was so over loaded that it only works on fast computers. with this one you click on the space where you want a piece to move to and it changes colors. I'm uploading the office 2010 version of this one. "Clue Murder Mystery4dice.pptm"
The second game board uses a macro to move the pieces. You click on a piece then click where you want it to move to. I find that it doesn't work with interactive white boards very well, but it has much smaller system requirements than the other game board. This one is named "moveable pieces cludo.ppt"
I also included some game cards that I edited with photoshop then printed out for using in class.
I also have some game pads that include all the rooms weapons and suspects that I wanted to use. (I like poison and I don't like lead piping/lead pipe)
Also you will find some game pads to help the students to eliminate suspects.
Finally I made a backing pattern to glue to the back of my cards to make them a little more anonymous.
I find that my powerpoints have big differences in success depending on the computer and version of Powerpoint that I use. You may need to turn macro security to low to play these games properly.
I'll try to answer any questions you may have.
Mr. Craig from Andong.
