Product Description
Looking for a fun way to review students for your big exam - like STAAR in Texas? This is a fun review game that covers people, events, documents, treaties, wars, vocabulary - you name it - in Early American History. This game covers content from Exploration to 1877!

All you need to play is small, cheap envelopes! Simply print out this product, (laminate if possible), cut up the cards and place them in the envelopes for each group.

In groups of 4 or 5, a student will pull out a card from their envelope and start describing it to their group. (They give "GOOD" clues, not clues that will "give it away.") When their group members guess correctly, the student puts the term on their desk and continues to describe as many more terms as they can before the teacher says "PASS." That student then hands the envelope to the next group member and it's their turn to start describing. This is a RACE between groups. The group that describes all of their cards first wins.

This is a fun way to review a ton of U.S. History in a competitive, active way!

This product includes:
-teacher instructions with pictures
-student instruction page (to be projected to a whole class, or printed to have at each group)
-294 cards - divided into Eras (13 Colonies to French and Indian War, American Revolution, Articles of Confederation to Constitution, New Republic, Monroe - Jackson, War of 1812 - Reform - Causes of the Civil War, Civil War - Reconstruction)
-lots of blank cards if you choose to add your own.

This product covers the TEXAS TEKS for 8th Grade U.S. History!
