Spot-It Game Cards
If you know how to play Spot it! our new card sest could be great fun!
For our first try at this, we used 31 of the original Chronos game cards to develop our own Chronos Spot it game cards! We trimmed the original cards, and even created a few new ones, so as to be able to show identifiable faces that were positioned in the very middle of the image (cropping or adding white space was sometimes necessary). Then we used Aaron Barker’s Spot It clone generator page here, and voilà!
For our second batch, we tried using a few of the images by Lilymagine (Under Creative Commons BY-NC-SA) which are posted on the original French version of this site here. And we created a new set with these new fun characters.
New: Inuit in the 1980s and now!

How might you use these in class? Well, anything goes really, the cards are here to use as you like. However, one idea might go something like this:
The first team to see what item matches in the two drawn cards gets one point, then IF they can identify who/what the image represents, they get another point. Then maybe they get another chance to perform a higher-level task referring to the original Chronos card or with regard to the information on the back of any corresponding card set (ex. from the Connect Facts cards, or the Explora cards, for situating in time and space, etc.). For the next card pair to be drawn, the team who got the last one gets to turn the next pair over, giving them a slight advantage. The team with the most cards or points at the end wins.
