Professor Noggin's Freshwater Life of North America Card Game Review by Kendra FletcherOutset Media

Professor Noggin's Freshwater Life of North America Card Game offers many of the benefits mentioned above. It is a game that levels the playing field across the ages because the directions are simple, if not Spartan. Players decide collectively whether to play the "easy" or the "hard" level. There is also a variation to play with players of multiple skill levels. Then simply roll the dice and the player on your left asks you the question on the card that corresponds to the number on the dice. If you answer the question correctly, you get to keep the card. The player with the most cards at the end of the game wins. These are definitely uncomplicated rules of play for even a little one to understand.
The questions are the best part of Professor Noggin's Freshwater Life of North America Card Game. They are facts that most children, or adults for that matter, would not readily know the answer to. Because the cards are re-used if not won by a player, review is automatic and the players learn the facts as the game progresses.
The questions on the cards cover a wide range of subtopics under the heading of "Freshwater Life of North America." An easy question might be, "Are river otters carnivores, omnivores, or herbivores?" A hard-level question might be, "River otters belong in the Mustelidae family. What is the common name for the Mustelidae family?"
I have seen Professor Noggin's Freshwater Life of North America Card Game in educational supply stores as well as in game and toy stores. Professor Noggin's games offer a variety of subjects, from famous inventions to insects to the Civil War. These games provide something for everyone as well as encourage productive use of a child's non-academic portion of the day.
