This is a fun review game that I let my students play after teaching the unit on 19th century literature, art, abolitionists, women's rights. The game includes 16 ready-to-be-printed cards with photos of the individuals. I print them on colored paper and laminate them so they last year after year. This is a great way for students to learn important people from the 19th century.
HOW TO PLAY THE GAME:
1. Every student gets a card.
2. You choose any student to start.
3. The first student reads their card starting with "Who is..."
4. The student with the corresponding answer reads "I am..." and then reads "Who is..."
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 am..."
You can start the game with any card because it makes a circle back to whomever 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 quickest, gets to bring a snack to eat after the test. My classes get very competitive and very fast.
