WORLDS OF ADVENTURE

This learning game for 2-8 players reviews and reinforces the skills and concepts that are covered in each of the units of A World of Adventure. Eight playing pieces and a set of three laminated game boards are included, each representing the World of Ancient Egypt / World of Ancient Greece, World of Ancient Rome / World of the Middle Ages, and World of the Renaissance / World of the Explorers. The game boards can be used separately or together in a series as players move from one to another. Question and Answer Booklets complete this package, which includes more than 3,300 multiple choice questions from all subjects of each unit of A World of Adventure. Questions are arranged in unit order, and the day on which each question is covered is referenced for your convenience. Worlds of Adventure is meant to be used along with the curriculum each day for a successful learning experience.

Worlds of Adventure may be played as soon as you begin A World of Adventure, using only the World of Ancient Egypt / World of Ancient Greece game board and the questions that apply to what you have covered to date. As students progress through the curriculum, they will add additional game boards for separate unit games or for a marathon game with all of the game boards combined.

Worlds of Adventure may be used as a resource for fun reinforcement and review, or as an assessment tool as questions are mastered. Note that ALL the vocabulary words and definitions from A World of Adventure are just part of the questions included, which cover all of the subject areas of the curriculum and will provide daily reinforcement. It is great for summer or extended breaks, either while you are using A World of Adventure or to review the material after you have completed the book.
