Geography Activities That Make Learning Fun: Grades 4-8.
Mozer, Lisa
The study of geography should not be tedious or boring for students. There are many activities to motivate students while teaching them place location and geographical information. This document describes three activities or games that can be adapted for grades 4-8. "Mappits" requires students (individually or in teams) to determine the state or country represented in a small cut-out section of a map. "Geography Trivia" involves the use of atlases to answer questions of geographic content. Several variations of this activity are described. "Geography Baseball" is a game to help students learn place location using atlases and classroom maps. A list of European locations that can be used in the game is included. The addresses of the following institutions committed to geographic education are also provided: the American Geographical Society, the Association of American Geographers, the National Geographic Society, and the National Council for Geographic Education.
