To review the life and times of Benjamin Franklin.
1 and 1/2 class periods
My students have enjoyed learning about Benjamin Franklin and other famous people by playing the MATCH GAME.
I divide the class into four teams, go over the rules, and begin. By the end of the period, the students have learned that Benjamin Franklin was one of the most interesting and talented people during the Colonial Period in America.
Easy-to-follow MATCH GAME rules are provided on the lesson pages.
Teacher Instructions are included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to assess student progress.
The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
