Fact: Kids respond more to what you are teaching in social studies if they are more involved in the learning.
A perfect way to do this is to have the kids participate in FATE cards.
You divide the kids into 6 city-states and each day have someone from their city-state draw a fate card.
When they draw a fate card, they will either gain "coins" or lose "coins!"
Your kids will look forward to this every day and they get to learn fun new facts!
*Set comes with 32 fate cards.
If you want some ideas on how to implement this along with coming up with a fun way to do a simulation with the 6 city-states, message me!
