The Earth’s Crust Game

Mom and I read through a book about the Earth. We learned how the Earth’s crust moves, what volcanoes and earthquakes are, and what all of that means for us. We made an “Earth’s Crust” board game.

Landing on a volcanic eruption costs you two tokens, and the squares before and after it are labeled “volcanic ash” and cost you one token. A “sleeping volcano” earns you a token. Landing on an earthquake also costs you a token.

We made questions from sentences from the book. When we land on a blank space on the board, we have to answer a question. Right answers get us more tokens.

Whoever has the most tokens when we’re done playing the game wins!
