How to make Geography lessons stick

How to make geography le
ssons stick - Educents 
How do you teach geography? Do you spend hours creating a map, labelling, cutting and pasting? It's so fun imagining all the ways this Mona MELisa reusable US Map that can be used in the classroom or at home. All the states, capitols, and geogra phic information is ready for you to stick on to the map!

  Here are a few geography activities to try:
  1. Playing "Name That State" with family an d friends during the holidays. What better way to get the whole family together than a game for kids of all ages. Work in teams or alone to identify stat es and challenge seasoned family members in lightning fast rounds.
  2. Need a little direction? Use the compass to have children in the class describe where states are in relation to each other.Let your kiddos take turns directing each other around the country by using the directions on the compass. They'll have an awesome time walking their fingers from east from west in search of the correct state-- but be sure to watch out for the oceans!
  3. Guess and reveal state capitals by peeling awa y the brightly colored shapes. Remembering capitals can be tricky, but the easy to peel states with state capitals hidden underneath offer up a great way to ditch the flashcards and take the learning to the walls!
  4. Keep track of where you've been (or where you're going). I love this one! Use the state names to label the states wh ere all of the students in your class have been.
