So remember when I said that learning the continents is a basic skill every child should know? So I found five free activities that will make learning the continents super simple and fun. Also these are multi-age activities so all your children will be able to join the fun.
- Name all 7 continents
- Identify the continent you live on
- Locate the continents on a map by memory
Before I begin any activity or lesson, I always introduce the concept through a book, video, or question. This helps my children become more engaged and excited to learn later.
Here are a few books to help introduce the continents to your children.
After reading a book, use a globe to locate the continents. We have 2 globes in our home, I really like this globe below.
Now for the fun part. Choose a few activities to complete with your children. Remember when learning you should always go back and review to make sure yor children retain the information.
Here are the free activities:
