From the maker of the card game (The Classical Historian):
Playing various card games with our “Go Fish Games” makes learning history MORE fun! Playing our games helps create a positive learning environment, teaches history facts, chronology, and association. They are a great way to begin or end class or perfect for a car ride. Students love these games and remember everything they learn. Paired with our booklet the games painlessly teach basic facts about American history.
There are Two Versions of Play in each Go Fish Game:
A. Go Fish
B. Collect the Cards
In Go Fish, players try to get “four of a kind” by finding all four cards in one category. In playing this game, players learn association and chronology. Players try to collect all four-of-a-kind cards from the following categories. The player who captures most sets wins.
In Collect the Cards, players try to guess the card based on three hints that are found on each card. This game helps students memorize important facts and teaches inductive thinking skills.
The booklet provides the teacher with a wide variety of games to teach American history to kids in a one-on-one setting, in a family with kids of different ages, or in classrooms with 40 students. It includes short history explanations for all 48 American History Go Fish Games.
