Looking for a quick review for your unit study of the Renaissance? Look no further! This popular game of "I Have, Who Has?" covers topics related to the European Renaissance. Your students will practice listening skills, recollection of facts, and concentration as they review important Renaissance concepts.
There are 27 game cards total, and play should take between 8-10 minutes...although if you play multiple times, you'll find your students might be motivated to beat their previous time!
To play, print out two sets of cards. (I suggest printing one set on card stock and laminating for durability.) Cut apart the student set and shuffle the cards well. Pass out one card to each student. The student whose card says, "I Have Italy. Who has the theater in London where Shakespeare performed many of his plays?" reads aloud his/her card, and play goes from here. Stress to students good listening skills, as everyone should listen closely to hear if their card answers the previous "Who has?" question. The teacher should follow along with the second set of cards; I suggest you do not cut these apart, but leave printed on three pages to make following along in order easier. Kids always love playing this game, and my students usually ask to play it again the next day to see if they can beat their previous time!
Hope you enjoy! Thanks for looking! ~Kristy Gross
