This fun Promethean Board activity will help your students retain the French and Indian War, the Run up to the Revolutionary War, and Important people and facts about the Revolutionary War.
It works the way the old 'Concentration' game where you turn over one card and try to find the card that matches it. I break the kids up into up to 5 teams and we play the game, taking in turn to give up 2 numbers to try and match. Once a match is made, you drag an orange square from the bottom left part of the screen to cover the match, click on the number in the upper right corner to go to the score screen and update the score, then click on the number there to go back to your game screen.
The final slide has the answer key.
Great interactive game that gets the kids SUPER PUMPED about a boring subject!
