I love history! I always say that if I had college to do over again, I would study history. I want to pass this love to my children in fun and engaging ways. One of these ways is through games.
I met the representative from The Classical Historian when I was in South Carolina for a conference and I just loved the products they offered. One of the selections were several card games that could be used for several grade levels and covered several different historical time periods.
Not only are these games affordable, only $11.99 per deck, but they can be used in a variety of ways: as a stand-alone game, as a review, as a teaching tool, etc. The colorful pictures and informative descriptions make them a vital part of my history classroom at LMCA.
The study of anything is better retained when more senses are engaged and the learner is a more active participant in the process. I encourage you to visit The Classical Historian website and consider making these games a part of your history classroom as well.
