Games are such a great way to learn things. That’s why I’m so excited about the printable history games I’ve been working on. I’ve combined some of my interests of teaching and learning along with my kids and I’ve come up with some great educational file folder games. Now, I’ll admit I didn’t do this all by myself. I’ve had some amazing help from my boys. They’ve supplied me with so many great ideas and they’ve helped me a lot with game board design. I really couldn’t have done it without them.
You can also download one of my games for free (click the download link at the bottom of the page). George Washington: Path to Presidency is a fun board game on the life of George Washington.
You’ll learn a lot about the life of George Washington playing the game. The game board follows his life from birth to his election as the first president of the United States. It also includes forty-five question cards on the office of the presidency and of the lives of most of our presidents up to Donald Trump.
We had a lot of fun making this game and more fun playing it. I don’t think you or your kids can play it without learning from it. The questions are all multiple-choice so even if you’re clueless about the presidents you at least have some chance of getting them right. With multiple-choice questions, kids of all ages (and adults who need some help with their history) can play it. I even managed to win a game against my son who’s a history whiz. But that’s only because he contracted smallpox four times (yes, I know, technically this is impossible) and then kept surrendering at Fort Necessity.
