Memoir ’44 a hit in Elementary School Classroom

Memoir ’44 fan and elementary school teacher, Jesse Rasmussen has turned Memoir ’44 into an exciting learning experience for his students.

Jesse (rasmussen81), who is a contributor to the Memoir ’44 Campaign Book, created the Memoir ’44 History Club at Jewell Elementary School in Bend, Oregon. It meets twice a week after school and has students not only learning how to play Memoir ’44, but also about WWII history. Recently a local newspaper, the Bend Bulletin published a feature story on the club. Read the Memoir ’44 History Club article here.

You can also visit the Memoir 44 History Club Blog to learn more about how the students are using Memoir ’44 to learn about World War II.

Congratulations to Jesse and his students for putting together such a great club!

    This article proves that Memoir ’44 isn’t just for older gamers…it can be very fun and educational for young kids too!

    Thanks, Days of Wonder for the game I can use with my teaching!

    What a great idea! I am in the process of organizing a community gaming organization and this would be a great way to build an interest in that organization. I am starting to work in the local elementary school as a volunteer and this is something that I will definitely take in with me. Thanks for the story!

    I wish there were teachers in school like Rasmussen 81 when I was in grade school. I most likely would have liked school better than I did, gotten better grades too. Your students will know how WWII was and not how it is being rewritten today. They will also know more about it than most high school and collage students do today. Keep up the good work, we need more teachers like you.

    Thank you so much for the kind words! I almost feel guilty because I have so much fun teaching the game and teaching them about World War II; plus I get to keep all the material over the summer months and play huge games with my friends! If anyone wants to visit Bend over the summer I have 6 sets of Memoir that will be waiting for people to use!
