This is a great way to review for the 8th grade STAAR test! This set of "Swat the STAR" includes the 13 Colonies period. Topics covered are listed below. I've included a blank star in case you want to add your own topics.
To play this game Simply print these stars out and laminate them (or use sheet protectors) and tape them on your wall. One member of each team will be "up" to answer a question that you ask orally. The first to swat the answer wins a point for their team.
