US history trivia: American Trivia Junior review
The trivia game American Trivia Junior
by Outset Media, designed for kids ages 9 and up, is a fun way for kids to learn about the history of the United States. It can be played by 2 to 8 players, in small or large groups, ideal for get-togethers or family gatherings. What we like about this game is that unlike other trivia games, this one really contains educational content and questions that promote learning.
Furthermore, being designed for children, the Junior version has questions that are not too difficult, but not too easy either so that even adults can have fun playing the game. This game is also a great travel game and the cards can actually be used on trips (if you play the game without the board).
Kids learn about important historical events such as the American Revolution, America’s quest for independence, key battles or more recent events in the 20th century. The game challenges kids and tests their knowledge of US history. Kids also enhance their memory as they memorize dates and key historical figures.
Actually studies have shown that trivia games can sharpen learning and memorization skills. And having good memorization skills is actually important when it comes to learning history. As kids learn and enhance their knowledge of history, they also become more self-confident which is also important for their future success at school.
If adults or even children find the questions too easy they can play with the regular America Trivia
game. Also designed for 2 to 8 players, American Trivia is an American history trivia that can be played by children as young as 9 years old, even though it contains more difficult US history questions. This game also contains US geography questions, so that children can also learn about the geography of the United States.
Overall, American Trivia Junior (Junior or regular edition) is a great buy and a very educational trivia game that combines play with learning American history.
