It's the plaintive cry of history students everywhere, "How can I memorize all these names and dates and facts?" History is filled with amazing stories, world-changing events, and decisions that affect everyone living today. Students get so caught up in the memorization, however, that they miss the excitement of history. This product is designed to make that memorization a little easier and more fun, so that students can take that knowledge and begin seeing, and appreciating, the bigger picture.
Students can use the cards in a variety of ways. Each deck of 44 cards consists of 11 four card sets-- one picture card and three fact cards-- about the Founding Fathers, the Federalists, and the Anti-Federalists. The cards can be used to play games similar to Go Fish, Authors, Concentration, Spoons, and Solitaire. They can also be used as flashcards for review, manipulatives to create timelines, and focal points for mind map connections. You can even have your students come up with their own ideas on how to use the cards.
