This is a fun review game that I let my students play after teaching the unit on the Civil War. The game includes 38 ready-to-be-printed cards. I print them on colored paper and laminate them so they last year after year.
HOW TO PLAY THE GAME:
1. Every student gets a card.
2. You choose a student to start.
3. The first student reads their card starting with "Who has..."
4. The student with the corresponding answer reads "I have..." and then reads "Who has..."
5. The next student with the corresponding answer reads their card, and the students continue until all cards have been read.
6. The game will finish with the same person that started. Except the last person will only read "I have..."
You can start the game with any card because it makes a circle back to whoever started. I time how long it takes the class to complete the cards. I give each class three tries (rotating cards around by having them trade with someone on the other side of the room). Each time they play the game, I write the fastest time (time to beat) on the board. Whichever class can go through the cards the fastest gets to bring a snack to eat after the test. My classes get very competitive and very fast. It takes them about 15 minutes the first time, 10 minutes the second time, and 5 minutes the third time.
