Description
 
34pp. tan paper wrapper with title information printed in brown ink. Page 2 has an index listing the games in alphabetical order so you can easily locate a specific game.  Note to teachers on page 3 explains that these games were carefully selected for their educational value, but also because they are quiet and will not disturb other classes. It also mentions that this collection is by no means complete because it does not include "the more primitive hunting, fighting, and hiding games so essential to the development of young children". Each game is given a title, an age range spanning 1st grade to adult, followed by a description of the game, instructions on play, any necessary diagrams, and tips on how to cater the game to specific age groups. Also included "in response to frequent requests" is a list of table games for individual play. Measures 8" x 5 1/2"..
