7 Continents Free Printables (Activity 1)
After I was finished making the 3-part cards, we went to the homeschool room. We have a stunning Geography area that we adore. We went over the landmass maps on the puzzle and named the mainlands (continents).
We have a little rhyme we use to name off the mainlands. It causes us recall every one of them seven. At that point, we got our inflatable globes and were finding and pointing at the various landmasses on them.
Next, I set out the main arrangement of the 3-part cards and we went over those names. After that, I got the second arrangement of the 3-part cards and gave Sister the pictures (since she is younger) and Brother the names (since he is older).
At first, Sister would match one of her mainland pictures and afterward Brother would locate the coordinating name and set it underneath the picture that Sister had matched up.
They truly appreciated doing it a few times. I was an observer, not by any means controlling, simply giving them a chance to do their exercise after I did the first Presentation of this work.
