The Classical Historian Go Fish Ancient History Game

For this review I got to review the Ancient History go fish game by The Classical Historian.  Inside this one set of cards is four games; Go Fish, Collect the Cards, Continents, and Chronology.  Go Fish is the only game that we played for our kiddos age, she is 9, and we have not started to learn Ancient History in our Homeschool yet.  This game was a wonderful way to start a gentle approach to learning about Ancient History.  I was amazed at the amount of information on these cards. From The Classical Historian website they say "This one deck of 50 cards with the answer key teaches the following skills through four fun games: Basic historical facts, Chronology, Geography, Association, and Social Skills required to follow the rules and play games with others. "

John De Gree is the founder of this company, The Classical Historian, who along with his wife homeschool their 7 children.  They created this game from wanting to find something to incorporate games into their education.  (Who doesn't love to have fun while learning?!?!)

We had a blast paying Go Fish Ancient History after dinner each night at the dining room table, our daughter loved learning about Native American Homes the most and from the cards she wanted to learn about Pueblos.  So this fun game sparked a learning adventure for us to learn more about Pueblos!

The Classical Historian provides history curriculum for preschool through 12th grade.  They have memory games all the way to complete history curriculum for 6th through 12th grades.

You can pick up Ancient History go fish from The Classical Historian for only $11.95, that's a pretty good price if you ask me!!  They also offer the go fish game in Medieval History and American History for the same low price!

I look forward to when we get further into our study of history in our Homeschool, and think that this is a product that we will definitely be using in the future!
