Welcome to FRECK! Decks.
A new tabletop card game AND classroom resource aimed at teaching your students key social studies vocabulary in an engaging, competitive & creative way. Easy-to-learn game steps, quick-hitting clues & dynamic game play make FRECK! a must-have for every history classroom.
The crazy story.
Gregg & Mat, two history teaching colleagues enjoy teaching US history, but they’ve looked around over the years to try and find an alternative to the boring, same ol’ resources companies were putting out there. All they found were flashcards, the “I Have Who Has” decks and other yawners. So, they came up with their own solution. FRECK! in History. It offers educators a fresh new way to strengthen student understanding of the content & process terms found in state social studies standards.
The kick-butt game.
First off, the word FRECK means “to be nimble, ready or strong.” It’s important for kids to be exactly that… ready & strong in history vocabulary.
We also think it stands for “Fluid Recognition of Essential Content Knowledge.”
FRECK! is an easy-to-teach, competitive trivia game for the history classroom. It combines classic card game actions, clever clues, historical images, and the interaction we as teachers look for (and without their face in a screen!). But it’s way more than that.
