The Name Game.
Crawley, Sharon J.
Described is a game which provides a method for teaching students to locate cities and towns on a map. Students are provided with a list of descriptive phrases which stand for the name of a city, e.g., hot weather town (Summerville, Georgia); a chocolate candy bar (Hershey, Pennsylvania). Using a map, students must then try to find the name of a city that fits the description. Once students are familiar with the procedure, they can develop their own name games. Provided are examples of descriptions of cities and towns in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, New York, and Ohio. (RM)
