Rhyming Game "Dusty Rhymes"

Rhyming Game "Dusty Rhymes"

Inspired by Rhyming Dust Bunnies by Jan Thomas, this game includes 64 picture cards to rhyme, 2 broom cards, and 2 vacuum cards in three versions. Play the “Dusty Rhymes” game using either set of 32 cards or play a matching game with all of them! The dust cloud cards each have images on them that have rhymes, as well as two broom cards and two vacuum cards. Cut out the cards, and put them all in a bag. Each player draws a card and calls the name of the picture and a word that rhymes with it. If a player draws out a vacuum or a broom, he or she must return all the cards he or she has collected so far into the bag. They have been “cleaned up.” Play with a set timer, such as two minutes, and see how many pictures the students can rhyme! Alternatively, print out both sets of rhyming dust clouds and play a matching game. In this version the player would say the picture on the two cards selected. If the two words rhyme, they have a match! In this game, whoever has the most matches at the end is the winner.

Marco Polo's Silk Road Game

Marco Polo's Silk Road Game

Teach about Marco Polo, historical Europe to Asia trade routes, ancient civilizations, and the dangers and difficulties of medieval travel with a simulation game. Players make choices about what to trade for along historic trade routes, take a "chance" in the dangerous desert, and must plan ahead for food. Perfect for both homeschooling settings and for classrooms, the game provides children with an entertaining way of learning about Marco Polo, ancient civilizations and historical trade routes, and the difficulties and dangers travelers would have faced along the way. Younger children will probably take 30 minutes to get to China and back, but they will be asking to play again! Older students may want to negotiate the best prices in cities or take multiple journeys to China in one game, so their game will last longer. If you decide to implement the hands-on alternatives (fabric scraps to represent silk and raisins or another small food for the required "food" allowance, for example) your kids will beg to play some more! It is fun for young children and older children alike. This game introduces the following concepts: • Marco Polo traveled through mountains and desert to get to China. (In our game, we return via the same route; Marco Polo returned a different way). • A paiza (golden passport given to Marco Polo’s father from the emperor of China) provided the travelers a degree of protection from Mongol warriors and gave the travelers hospitality in caravansaries along the way. • Silk and porcelain from China was worth a lot in Venice. • Other places on the trade route provided Europe with tin, rugs, jade, and porcelain. • Between Italy and China are many mountains and deserts. • Preparation is required before entering a desert, and travelling through the desert is taking a chance. Included in the zip file are the following *Game pieces to print (if you do not want to find small objects, you can print these images on cardstock!) * Full playing instructions (5 pages) * Map game board from Venice to Xi'an, China (4 pages to print and tape together) * A template to design a paiza * “Take a chance” cards (for when you "take a chance" by landing in the desert)
