To provide students with concise reviews of previous lessons on the Civil War and Reconstruction.
1 and 1/2 class periods
The class will be divided into five teams. Five headings –– Card 1, Card 2, Card 3, Card 4, and Card 5 –– are put on the board. Numbers 1-10 are listed under each heading.
Play begins with the teams trying to identify the missing words, names, and terms on Card 1. Each team is assigned specific spaces to find answers for.
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 2-7.
Students will 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 Civil War and Reconstruction.
Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included.
