Connect the Facts – Societies and Concepts for 1980+
This is a new 1980s version of the original Connect the Facts Gaming Strategy
(available for Societies in the 1500’s here)
Teams amass points by identifying the societies portrayed on the fronts of playing cards, by classifying them according to the aspects, and by connecting the information to various big ideas and concepts. This card game strategy could be used to review and remind students of the facts related to the different societies studied in and around 1980. It assumes previous knowledge of each society, of the various aspects, and of at least some of the key concepts referred to.
