This is my Civil War edition of the popular "I Have...Who Has?" game. The words included in this game are about the causes of the Civil War and important people/events during the war. I love to use this game as a vocabulary review before a test. Just cut out the strips, laminate if you like, and you are ready to play!
To make it more engaging, I time the students to see how fast they can complete the game. Then I post the times on the board so that each class period is competing against the others. I will usually let the class play a few rounds so they can get their best time. By the time the entire class has played through the game three or four times, the students know their vocabulary words!
