    Now she said she would prefer we NOT do a poster and I have no access to power point and no idea how to use it so that doesn't leave many options.........My topic is Breast cancer.......I really DON"T want to do a paper....look at the gudelines for a paper for goodness sakes....any ideas???
    I had one thought....I thought of a game.....making a game board in the shape of a breast,lol.........making up alot of cards with questions and answers that tell you how many spaces to move or something like that......anyone else have any ideas?? Please any thoughts would be appreciated!!

    I like the game idea Robin! Soooo original and creative! You could make trivia type questions, questions about breat cancer facts, self exam stuff, etc. Make it a "race" to being breast cancer aware!

    I also like making the game board look like a breast! Do your instructors and fellow students have a sense of humor? You could make the game pieces little nipples, and the race is to get your nipple to it's correct placement before anyone else....

    :chuckle :roll I think it's time for me to go to bed!

    Let us know what you decide to do!

    I have to incorporate medical terms and such into the game and I think I can easily do it with a game....being an adult and with the topic I can't see how this could be construed in a way other than it is intended......I see pink gum drops covered in shellac for game pieces.......I guess I need to hit Hobby Lobby,lol..............

    You go girl! Who knows......you might even be able to market that as an educational game one day, and become rich from doing so. If so.......can I be your promoter? :chuckle :kiss

    Okay.....so far......have decided against using gumdrop nipples...may be too risque for my teacher......trying to decide whether to use the outline of one breast or two for a bigger gameboard. I think I am goin to use cut outs of the National Awareness Ribbon for game pieces and makes cards with med terms and facts on them to place in the middle....you draw a card...it has a question....you answer...open a flap on bottom and it tells you right or wrong...move forward...back....whatever.....What do you guys think so far???

    The game sounds great Robin really creative, definately an "A" project!

    Although my wierd sense of humor thinks the cards should have the naked woman silouette on them--like truckers have on their mudflaps :roll [echoes of loud groaning] :chuckle

    Gosh....can you imagine sitting and cutting out all those.........lol

    Okay another question for you girls and guys....breast cancer is a broad topic and if I were going to make sets of cards and split into categories.....awareness/prevention(same thing),treatments, and....what other categories or how could I break those down? I would like to have at least 4........thanks guys!
