This history lesson is sure to put a smile on your students’ faces! Put their knowledge to the test with this “Who Am I?” historical trivia game!
All you’ll need is the Ellison SuperStar Machine (or Sizzix Big Shot), Rectangle Envelope Die and some medium-weight cardstock.
Use the SuperStar machine to cut out the envelopes, one per historical figure.
The envelope die cuts are already pre-scored, so folding them is a breeze!
In the center of each die cut, write the name of an important figure from American history. Teachers can prepare all of the envelopes for the class or allow each student to create an envelope to contribute to the game.
Fold the envelope closed (with the name of the historical figure inside of the envelope), and write “Who Am I?” on the back flap of the envelope.
On the front side of the envelope, write a clue or two related to the historical figure inside of the envelope. To play the “Who Am I?” Game, students take turns reading the clues on the cards and trying to guess who the person inside the envelope is. This game works great in teams or small groups, but the cards also make effective flashcards when studying alone.
Making this “Who Am I?” historical trivia game is as simple as cut, fold and write! This game is a lot of fun for students and can easily be adapted for many different educational subjects and topics.
