Tap in to your students’ current interests and video games are always a fun integration with school!
From the creator:
“I used a die cut to punch out a thousand little yellow circles and then blue construction paper on the paper cut to make skinny lines. Stapled up the framework the decorated it.
We had the students write their name on a construction paper Pac-Man ghost (hand drawn ghost then used white circles for eyes and black sharpie) and we stapled them all over the game board.”
How can you use this board with your students?
- Have students create their own “ghost” and then set a goal for something academic. Each time they hit their goal, they can move their ghost to the next dot. See if they can get to the other side of the board by the end of the year.
- Have students create unique ghosts and ask them to compare and contrast their ghosts.
- After putting up the bulletin board, ask student groups to create their own learning game based on the topic you are currently focusing on in a specific subject.

Chasing the High Score
- Begin by covering the bulletin board with black paper or fabric.
- Next, add the border around the edges.
- Cut out yellow squares (or use a hole punch to punch out yellow circles).
- Cut out straight blue lines from blue paper.
- Staple your blue lines to create the pathways.
- Then, add the yellow dots/circles.
- In the middle box of the game board, add your title “Our students will aMAZE you!”
- Add Mr. and Mrs. “Pacman” close to the title, along with the cherries under the header.
- Finally, students will create their ghosts and staple those wherever you like on your board to finish it off.
Incorporating pop culture elements in your classroom will keep students more engaged in the learning and create a novel environment that feels safe to learn.
