PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an eclectic set of lists that will enhance a student's general knowledge. Most lists have mnemonics to aid memorisation.
Examples include: British Prime Ministers, The Twelve Apostles, The Fifty States of USA, The Wives of King Henry VIII, The Greek Alphabet, NATO Phonetic alphabet, 7 Wonders of the Ancient World, the countries formed from the breakup of the USSR, The Old and New Testament, Chinese Animal Zodiac, Parts of Speech etc.

Each week, as part of their homework, I challenge my students to learn one specified list and at the end of the week we check to see how many have met the challenge. Some use the mnemonics - some simply learn the lists. They thrive on these challenges and are proud of their new-found knowledge. In addition, I have received excellent feedback from parents. This has been a labour of love building as many useful lists as I could find. There's a list for each week of the academic year. I intend to build this up to 50 and when I do all buyers will get an updated copy at no cost.

My son really likes trivia and I knew he would enjoy these lists. I haven't yet shared them with my fourth graders, but I think they'll enjoy some of them too.

Thanks angiegriffith. I've tried 'n' tested these on my own children. When my daughter was 6, she was so proud that she could name USA's 50 states, the phonetic alphabet, the Morse Code and the 12 Apostles. They're like sponges at this age and it's amazing how quickly they retain facts. My 11 year old son knows all of the lists and it's really boosted his confidence. :-)
