This is an example of an I-Spy gaming strategy for Societies in 1500, created with Google Drawings and images and information on the Societies and Territories site!

Feel free to use the images created here in any way you choose, but instructions for such a game-based strategy could be quite simple:  

  • Use the provided images online, OR print them out as large as you can.
  • Students follow the provided clues to discover the hidden objects or images taken from sections on the Societies and Territories site. (Note that you can copy and edit the Google Document, to change the clues or add new ones!)
  • The large versions of the google drawings, linked to in their “preview mode”, also contain links to the corresponding pages on the S and T site, so you or the students can verify the choice of the hidden image.  (Yes, answer versions are available!)

And consider having the students use this strategy to create their own I-Spy games to share and learn together!
