Engage students in nonfiction reading about the Explorers as they play Old Maid, Concentration and Go Fish. Old Maid, Concentration and Go Fish can all be played with the same set of cards. Take out the “Old Maid” card for Concentration and Go Fish. Besides these games, I also have students place the Explorers in timeline order by the clues given or doing some extra research.
**I have placed the name and graphic on one card to be matched with the nonfiction information for each Explorer on the corresponding card. To ensure that students make the right matches and help Special Education students be successful in play games with general education students the nonfiction card also has a small graphic.
**Please note the facts and trivia for each Explorer is what I found to be accurate, using both books and historical based websites.
This game includes:
*Instruction for Old Maid, Concentration and Go Fish
*Old Maid card
*48 playing cards
(24 cards have Explorer’s name and clip art)
(24 cards have nonfiction trivia and information for each Explorer clipart)
Explorers included in this game are: Magellan, Amerigo Vespucci, Ponce de Leon, John Cabot, Balboa, Cartier, Champlain, Columbus, Coronado, Cortez, De Soto, Dias, Eric the Red, Hudson, Lewis, Clark, Sacajawea, Leif Ericson, Pizarro, Verrazano, Marco Polo, John White, John Smith, and Kublai Khan.
