How to play
Monopoly has been a family favourite for over 80 years, played and enjoyed in living rooms around the world. Our unique version of this classic game is sure to create excitement and a little competitiveness in your classroom. To play, you’ll need to print and laminate the attached PDF.
You can play our version of Monopoly Gratitude in the classroom, or outside in an open space. To begin, place the laminated squares on the ground in the sequence outlined on the Monopoly game card. Remember to set the dice and deck of playing cards in the centre of the game. Before the students begin, each pair or team will need a Monopoly game card and marker. Teams will start on GO, and they’ll throw the dice and move forward on the board the number of spaces indicated by the dice. Each square has instructions, explaining what students need to do before they move on. Once the students have answered the question and or completed the exercise outlined in the square they landed on, they roll the dice again. Each time students pass GO, they get one point for their team. If the questions are a bit difficult and after a couple of minutes the students haven’t come up with an answer, they can do 10-star jumps before moving on.
While Monopoly can go on and on; we recommend playing this version for 10 minutes. After the first 10 minutes’ students can have a quick drink break, before playing for another 10 minutes (Did you know that the longest recorded game of monopoly, went for 70 consecutive days WOW).
Monopoly Gratitude can be played competitively, or as a fun learning experience. Regardless of the choice you make, we’re confident your students will love it. Not only does it encourage learning in a fun and active environment. This is the ultimate way to start practising gratitude and self-appreciation in a none threating way.
