“Geography is the canvas of history and the map of the future!” ~ Blue Manor Education
I am big on geography. I use my Blue Manor’s Geography Curriculum and combine it with an exciting geography game called, “Where in the World is…?” The game can take many forms, but it goes something like this:
That is the prompt I tell my daughters before playing this game. They can’t wait to find all the countries! I use sprinkles because they are small enough to put on tiny countries and won’t ruin my children’s appetite. Plus, they offer an instant reward. We also use small toys like the Safari LTD Dinosaur Toob (affiliate link).
To play, tell your children the names of the countries you would like them to learn and show them where they are on the map. Then, place a small object on those countries. Call out the name of a country and have your children pick up the object on that country. Start with 3-5 countries in the first session. When they can successfully identify those, add more. And don’t forget to review! You can even add bodies of water, mountains, and important global features like the equator.
This game is great for review, but like I said, I use my Blue Manor Geography eBooks to teach from. This set includes; Basic Weather and Terrain, Advanced Terrain Features, USA Geography, World Geography, and 7 Printable Maps.
Below is a video of my daughters, 2 and 4, locating countries that they have learned. My eldest daughter can locate more than I could as a senior in high school!
