Who Wins?: 100 Historical Figures Go Head-To-Head and You Decide the Winner! (Spiral)
Let's say Charles Dickens challenges Mother Teresa to a lightsaber duel--they're both equally fit, so will his superior artistry overcome her advantage in bravery and leadership? Or who wins karaoke--Nelson Mandela or Jane Austen? They certainly both have a way with words, but Mandela's over-the-top courage might take the day.
Mixing and matching 100 historical figures in 50 competitive categories, from Ping-Pong to climbing Mount Everest, Who Wins? turns history into a compelling game, which means kids learn while having fun in the process. Each of the famous people is given a short bio and ranked in six categories--bravery, leadership, artistry, wealth, wisdom, and fitness.
And because there are no right answers, the reader decides, and in the very act of deciding and justifying the answer, real learning has taken place.
