Instructions

  1. Prepare 5 flashcard – Africa, Asia, North America, South America, and Europe
  2. Clear desks to side of room or go outside if possible
  3. Select 5 students to hold up flashcards
  4. Teacher calls out a country and students move to the continent where they think the country is
  5. Students who go to the wrong continent sit down
  6. Last student left wins
  7. Rotate flashcard-holders and play again

Variations

  • Stick flashcards to convenient objects so all students can play
  • Have the last 5-10 students win and give them all a small prize
  • Use nationality and/or language in addition to country
  • Change continents to categories like verb, adjective, noun

Notes

Use easy countries at first so less advanced students don’t get discouraged. Teach students the information and play it again. Seems to work best at the end of a lesson.
