Game On! (GO) - Digital
Game On! (GO) is a standards-based curriculum that offers students the chance to play, analyze, and create their very own tabletop games centered around a topic of the teacher’s choosing.
Designed for 8-18 year olds (Grades 2 and up), the Game On! curriculum is adaptable to all content areas, classrooms and student learning levels. After completion, student games are then playtested by fellow students, who provide feedback for their peers, thus deepening their sense of community and allowing for the exploration of new ideas for gameplay.

Important Note: This curriculum has been developed as two companion units in order to meet the needs of diverse learners and classrooms:
- The Roll and Move Curriculum is intended for grades 2-12. It presents unique challenges that will offer the opportunity to develop several 21st Century Skills in younger leaners and those less comfortable with abstract and complex systems. If you are looking for something more complex, please consider using the companion unit, the Resource Management curriculum.
- The Resource Management Curriculum is intended for grades 6-12. Development of a Resource Management game requires the ability to weave abstract ideas into a unified vision. Therefore, PCC recommends that it be used with 6-12th grade students who have some experience with project-based learning. The unit will provide many opportunities to develop 21st Century Skills for all participants. If you are looking for something simpler, please consider starting with PCC's companion unit, the Roll and Move Curriculum.
