The Classic Historian Memory Game
My husband is a big history fan, he really enjoys it over any other subject. Since our children are young they haven’t started learning much in the area of history, so when we had the opportunity to review the American History Memory Game from Classic Historian we were excited to see what it was going to be about. The game is priced at just $14.95 so it’s reasonably priced for something that doubles as fun and educational as well.
My kids had fun playing the game with us. Of course we let them win but it was fun talking to them about the pictures on the cards and explaining some of the history behind it. We started off with smaller sets of cards at first so they kids could get the hang of the game and as they got better with time we added more and more cards to challenge them some more. We still haven’t played with the full deck yet but we are getting there. This game is perfect for their age group but Classic Historian carry other products for older children who are older and in higher grades.
About the American History Memory Game: the game comes with two different ways to play. We have stuck with the classic version and since our kids are so young we probably won’t try the Categories version with them.
A. American History Memory: Play the classic matching game. The Player that finds the most matching pairs wins! This is a fantastic game for ages 3 and older.
Your child will become familiar with important historical people, monuments, maps, artifacts, and symbols. This game teaches very basic historical facts, image recognition, and memory skills.The tiles are very sturdy and beautiful. After playing with a very young person, he will be extremely interested to learn more about all the images on the tiles.
B. Categories: This game teaches chronology and association skills. Place four Category Tiles (Foundation of the U.S.A., Westward Expansion, The Civil War, Post Civil War) at the top of the playing area. Mix up the 64 Matching tiles. One player says, “Go!” and starts timing. The other player places all tiles under the correct tile. The person with the fastest time wins. For wrong placement, add 10 seconds per tile.This is appropriate for ages 8 and older and requires some knowledge of history. Follow our instructions page for the Answer Key!
