Engage students in nonfiction reading about the Presidents of the United States as they play Old Maid, Concentration and Go Fish. Old Maid, Concentration and Go Fish can all be played with the same set of cards. Take out the “Old Maid” card for Concentration and Go Fish. Besides these games, I also have students place the Presidents in timeline order. Their term in office is on each card.
**I have placed the name and graphic on both cards, along with just the nonfiction information for each President on the corresponding card. This ensures that students make the right matches and may help Special Education students be successful in play games with general education students.
**At times I have broken this game into two sets to make it more manageable for my struggling students…my gifted students love the challenge of all 44 Presidents…you can decide for yourself.
**Please note the facts and trivia for each President is what I found to be accurate, using both books and historical based websites.
This game includes:
*Instruction for Old Maid, Concentration and Go Fish
*Old Maid card
*88 playing cards
(44 cards have President’s name, clipart, and term in office)
(44 cards have nonfiction trivia and information for each President’s name, and clipart)
