To provide the students with concise reviews of previous lessons on the Age of Exploration.
2 class periods
The class is divided into 5 teams.
Play begins with the teams trying to identify the missing words, names, and terms on Card 1. There are 10 blank spaces. Each team is assigned two of the spaces.
Each correct answer is worth 10 points. When a team fails to give the right answer, the teacher will announce the missing word, name, or term.
Team members may not talk over possible answers.
The same person can give only one answer on a card.
Play continues in the same way with Cards 2-11.
Have students write the correct answers on the back of each card as they are given during the game. The cards can be used later to review the Age of Exploration.
Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included.
