Online Classes

hello

My name is, Missie Shimizu, and I am a Home School History Teacher. I have a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and hold a Bachelor of Science in Business with an emphasis in Marketing. I taught first grade for couple of years prior to having my children. During their homeschooling years, I was blessed with an opportunity in 2015 to return to the classroom teaching Home School history classes.

HISTORY OF GAMES

Games are an integral part of all cultures and are one of the oldest forms of human social interaction. For this class, we will talk about why we play games and the tools used for many board games. We will discuss, in detail, a few games that have stood the test of time and make a few projects along the way. Games such as the Royal Game of Ur (make our own game board), the ancient game of Senet (which can still be played today), Chess, Checkers (make our own Checkers Board), and Monopoly. We will cover a short history of playing cards and the beginning of video games. Included: 49:51min video lesson plus a downloadable packet with instructions and printouts. $21.00
