This game is a great way to get students on their feet and having fun doing something history-related! The Human Timeline Game is a fun learning activity that can excite and engage all students simultaneously while effectively dispensing and rehearsing historical information. It can be done at any time of the school year, since it is based on a “big picture” aspect of history—chronology—making it generally applicable and not limited to use with one particular unit. The Human Timeline Game is also flexible in terms of class time. It remains entertaining and educational through several rounds of play, even for an entire period, if necessary; but it also can be played in single-round matches to fill extra time at the beginning or end of a period. This simple package includes all you need: 20 sheets showing major events of US history (to be used for printing the packets of events); Teacher's Guide sheet with detailed procedures and rules of play; plus a teacher’s key to help you conduct the game with confidence.
