The Mystery of History Ancient History—Memory Game


This Ancient History Memory Game will teach children (primarily ages 5-10) names and images of important names and places from ancient times.  Patterned after the vintage card game of Concentration, students try to find matching tiles. The one who finds the most matching tiles, wins! (Some students younger than 5 will enjoy this one because the thick tiles are easier to pick up than cards.) Easy, fun, and informative, this memory game is an author favorite!


From the maker of the game (The Classic Historian):

“Excellent for brain development, our games can be used as instructional lessons during the school day, or during “Game Day.” These games give the teacher/parent an easy and fun way to teach basic names and images of important people, places, and things in history. Looking for something to do during summer to review or continue learning through games?

This game teaches very basic historical facts, image recognition, and memory skills. Your child will become familiar with important historical people, monuments, maps, artifacts, and symbols. The tiles are very sturdy and beautiful. This is a fantastic game for ages 5 and older. After playing, child will be extremely interested to learn more about all the images on the tiles.”
