The Enzyme Game

A card game based on matches of enzymes and their substrates and products. Students must assemble a set of three matching cards, but points are only awarded if the correct temperature and pH for the enzyme is obtained.

The rules can easily be modified to each class and objective.

Teacher's note: During the COVID-19 lockdown, I experimented with an online version of the game, where the cards were replaced by a playing board made in PowerPoint using the pictures from the cards and the pH and temperature spinner by a digital online dice. In this situation the teacher functions as gamemaster and the students are required to name the correct match for the card they land on.
