Product Description

This is the funniest game you will likely ever come across!

Both Thomas Jefferson and Napoleon Bonaparte have slipped on some ice and injured their heads. They cannot quite recall what they agreed to when they inked the deal, know as The Louisiana Purchase!

History students of the world have been called upon to help them out and sort through the muddled recollections of these middle aged men who are most dazed and confused. Your students will find this fun-filled - print and go - task hilarious!


Begin by distributing just the "background Information" page. Once you have read over this page with the students, then distribute the three pages (stapled) with the caricatures of Jefferson and Napoleon. The example shouldn't require any explanation at all.

For younger students you may have to provide some additional information. Such as: Virginia was never sold to anybody or California was not even a state yet, in 1803.


You can have the students create a few of their own wacky arguments that other students are to repair. You can also make this into a speaking task.
