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.

Activity Goals:

  • 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:
