Students love these games and remember everything they learn. Paired with the booklet the games painlessly teach basic facts about our history.
There are Two Versions of Play in each Go Fish Game:

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 cards.
