Challenge 9-Life before technology 

LO: To create a game 

SC1. I can explain my strategy for making my chosen game. 

SC2. I can use my resources to make my chosen game. 

SC3. I can consider how I will explain the rules of my game. 

SC4. I can reflect upon the success of what I have created. 


Today, I want you to create your game using the items from around your home. You probably won’t find exactly the same things that were originally used when the game was first played so you will need to improvise. 

For my game I chose the Egyptian game of Senet. I have included some photos of how I recreated the game using what I had around the house. 


The original game 

My “lockdown” version of Senet. 


Once completed, I would like you to reflect on how well you did when creating your game. You will need to consider if you can make any improvements and what you would have done differently if you did this again.  

Finally, please send me photos of your game. If you don’t finish today, then please  send me a picture tomorrow. 


Story time
