Product Description
OBJECTIVE::
To become familiar with the changes that were taking place in the United States during the 1800s.

TIME:
1 and 1/2 class periods

This lesson includes one of the most popular games I have written for my students. The kids really have fun with it and I enjoy playing it with them. Expect excitement!

Students start the activity by reading through a list of events between 1803 and 1823 on Timeline 1. They then put the numbers 1 through 9 inside of nine small corner spaces on the first game form. Class members are instructed to scramble the numbers, not put them in order.

NOTE: While the students are reading through Timeline 1, the teacher chooses any six events on the timeline and underlines on their own paper one key word, name, or term within each. When giving the questions for Game 1, these six events are read to the class, leaving a blank for the word, name, or term the teacher has underlined. More information on how to play the game is provided in the Teacher Instructions.

Game 1 begins when the teacher announces a number between 1 and 9. Next, a question is asked about the information on the timeline. Class members who think they know the answer will write it in the large space next to the announced number on the game form. Play continues in this way until six numbers have been announced and six questions asked. Students cannot look back at the timeline to find answers.

Following Game 1, papers are exchanged and correct answers read. Points are scored as follows: 10 points for each correct answer, 50-point bonus for three right answers in a row –– either across, down, or diagonally. It is possible to earn three 50-point bonuses by having right answers in a row in three different directions. The highest possible score is 210. The five people with the most points are the winners of Game 1.

Games 2-4 are played in the same way based on information in Timelines 2-4.

Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment or used as a review exercise later in the school year.
