Looking for a fun, hands on activity for students to learn about and review their knowledge of the different countries of Africa?
These sorting mats will challenge students to recall the information they have studied and use their critical thinking and/or research skills to fill in the information they don’t know. By using both hands as well as their language, visual and critical thinking skills, they will engage their whole brain during this activity.
This set contains sorting mats for the fifteen most populous countries in Africa divided and color coded into sets of five. Students will match the map, flag, capital and major cities, population and size, languages spoken, traditional foods, historical, cultural and geographical facts, currency, type of government and religions observed to each country. An answer key is included for students to self-check their work. Extension activities are also suggested.
Print and prep once and then use for years. Makes a great addition to any study of world geography.
Countries included: Nigeria, Ethiopia, Egypt, DR Congo, South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, Algeria, Sudan, Morocco, Uganda, Mozambique, Ghana, Angola, Ivory Coast
