History is so much more than dates, places, and names… even though all of those are incredibly important. It’s about people, nations, and the stories they leave behind them. We love history here at Mentimeter (some say it’s our favorite subject), so we’ve asked our resident wannabe historians to compile some quizzes that are perfect for both the classroom and lecture hall.
To use any of the Mentimeter templates linked in this article simply sign in to your Menti account and click on the ‘Get template’ button. It will then appear in your Presentations. If you haven’t signed up yet don’t worry it only takes a few quick clicks.

The world is an awfully big place and so much has gone on just in the past decade. It’s near impossible to keep up. But let’s have a look at some of the major events, people, and stories that have defined world history.
American history is a fascinating study of political, civic, and cultural leaders. Thanks to a historical narrative that is as dense as it is intriguing, we have been able to compile a Mentimeter quiz dedicated solely to the history of the United States.
