Product Description
This is a review game I created for my class to play after we completed our New Nation/Government unit. It is modeled after the Million Dollar Pyramid. My entire class plays at one time (broken up in pairs), or you could have a pair go alone each time or even send home for a family review game! The possibilities are endless! My class LOVED playing this game and begged for more, so I am in the process of making more for our future units. I know your class will love it, too!
