I used to use these all the time. My students used them for Louisiana explorers, early historical figures, governors, summaries of battles, inventions, parishes, places, festivals, music, home remedies, foods, graphic novels, etc. I used to get so many but that always let me know if my students 'knew' the information we were trying to cover. It was never a beating it into them, it was about how much they remembered.
There were only 7-8 tiny pages to cover the info I asked for so they had to summarize the info briefly. That is why if is called a 'poof' booklet. 'Poof' and time was up. Get it done, and not a lot of writing.
I generally had a big group of rubber bands, bulldog clips. Anything that would keep a class set together. I also used my poofs as a way to ascertain if a 'low-level' understood the info.
