Learning FUN Ideas
Enjoy these activity ideas for lots of FUN learning about the Continents:
Explore a Continent – Let's explore the world! With pieces from Continents of the World Learning Set as reference, ask individuals or small groups to select a continent to research. There's a "world" of opportunity: exploring countries, geography, languages, food, cultures, government, exports, and more. Once research has been completed, have groups share their discoveries with your class.
Learn About Your Ancestry – Did your family travel from around the world to get to where you currently live? Learn about your heritage and family origins. Using the Continents of the World Learning Set, map out where your family came from, including anywhere they settled along the way to where your live now.
It's a Wonder-Full World! The world has so many wonders to explore. Where to begin? Select a Wonder (Ancient, New, Natural) you'd like to learn about. The Pyramids of Giza? Machu Picchu? The Great Barrier Reef? Find its location on the Continents of the World map. Then, dig into what makes it special or appealing to you. Prepare to share what you've discovered with others: draw a picture, design a travel brochure, or create a multimedia presentation.
- Map the World! Provide students with a copy of The Continents of the World Blank Map Free Printable. Test their knowledge: Can they label each continent and ocean? Have them compare their map to the Continents of the World Learning Set. For an additional challenge, learn and label the Equator and the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, and identify in which continent (or continents!) a country is located.
