To provide the students with concise reviews of previous lessons on the growth and development of the United States between 1783 and 1853.
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
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.
Students should 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.
Complete game rules are provided on the first page of the lesson.
Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included.
