This is a review game I created for my class to use while teaching our unit on New Nation/Government. There are 36 cards included in this set.
You could use this game as a whole class review, review games for families to use, small group/center, etc. My class loves taking them and using them on their own! Check out my Instagram (fourthgrademania) or Twitter (klg2023) to see some shots of us using this and more in our classroom!
