    PROJECT - Due April 5th: Create a Rainbow Land board game:(Student Example)
    1. Use 32 (half-size) index cards. 16 cards will have a key term on them and the other 16 cards will have the key term's definition on it.
    2. Draw a board game similar to the game Candy Land. Instead of a colored path. Choose SIX of your key terms and write them on the path but leave plenty of blank spaces between these words. The SIX words will work like the pictures of candy in Candy Land.
    3. Now, you should have a path with only 6 words on it. From start to finish, use the remaining TEN key terms to fill in the blank spaces on the path. Write them in the same repeated order until you reach the finish. The last space can read "any word."
    4. Now that every space has a word in it, go back and draw a dark dot in 8 spaces. The dot means that the player will lose a turn if he/she lands on that space.
