The Enzyme Game
Purpose of the game:
To reinforce information learned about the function of enzymes (breaking down substances into their individual parts), to learn about 8 specific enzymes, to reinforce the fact that enzymes can only work at certain temperatures and pH levels, and (for students in America) to practice using the Celsius temperature scale.
Target age group:
4 players can play the game in about 20 minutes. 3 players will take more like 25 minutes and for 2 players allow at least half an hour.
Materials you will need:
Copies of the following pattern pages printed onto heavy card stock, paper fasteners (sometimes called “brads”), small washers (if possible, just to make the spinners work better), scissors, glue, and thin cardboard (cereal boxes work well and offer an opportunity to recycle!).
Set up time:
30-45 minutes, maybe a little more if you want to let the spinners dry before cutting them. (Of course, this does not include any time you spend running to a store to get things copied.)
