Looking for a fun, hands on activity for students to learn about and review their knowledge of the different countries of world?
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 bundle contains five different Countries of the World Sorting Mat products: North America (10 countries), South America (10 countries), Europe (15 countries), Asia (15 countries), and Africa (15 countries) for a total of 65 countries!
The sorting mats for each continent are 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.
