I made these quiz cards when we started Classical Conversations three years ago in Cycle 2. I love CC’s business-card sized flash cards for memory work, but I wanted the boys to be able to answer questions about their history sentences–not just spout them back to me by memory. Thus the history cards were born. Using the history sentences as the correct answer, they word questions in such a way as to elicit names, dates, place, and other important facts from the student. We used them with a Trivial Pursuit board and the boys had a blast.
I also made a set for math, not realizing at the time that the math memory work is repeated for all 3 cycles–bonus! Perhaps at some point I’ll find the time to create history sets for Cycles 1 and 3, but until then, hopefully these will be useful for someone out there.
