Thissmall boxincludes 64 matching images andeight category tiles, allowing you to play two games with this one set.
The first, American History Memory, is 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.
The second game, Categories, teaches geography and association skills. Place four Category tiles (Founding 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!
