Review: Classical Historian Memory Game
I received the Classical Historian Medieval History Memory Game to review.
The Classical Historian has memory games for Ancient History, Medieval History, and American history for $14.95 each, but they have a bundle deal for $39.95 for all three. They also sell Go Fish games, full Socratic history curriculum for grades 6-12 and online classes as well.
There are two ways to play the games. One way is the traditional memory games. There are 64 matching cards, which I thought would be a bit difficult for my 6-year-old-son, so I picked 26 of the cards I thought would be good talking points with him.
His 2-year-old sister was interested in playing, so I did a little 3x3 game with her at the same time. She wasn't trying too hard, lol.
The other way to play the games is to go through the catergories and place cards accordingly.
Overall we enjoyed this cute game. My son eats up facts and can absorb and remember the things I say to him easily that I would do more research and play the games with other cards so he gets to know more facts. Eventually I would like him to play it and tell me the facts. I can see how this helps with history lessons by and fun and variety to the school day.
