Complete the Chain Review Game

8163COMPLETE THE CHAIN is a simple review game that we use for various subjects.

It works like this:

Using an index card or similar sized card, write questions and answers that are to be linked.  The first card should say “Complete  the Chain” on the left side and the right side should have a question.  Your child will then need to find the answer to that question, which will be on another card.  He will need to place it next to the question. On the other side of the card with the answer, there will be a new question.  He’ll then search for the new answer which will also partner with a new question. Your child will continue linking questions and answers until he has no more cards.

I like to put a star sticker on the start card and a “great job” sticker on the last card.  This particular run was for Science and had 15 cards.

We like to add these to our Brain Boxes.  They are great for vocabulary matching and trivia.
