PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Studying landforms or land features in the United States? This is a fun game that has really helped my kids master the location of 16 famous features.

In this game, students will pull a number. They will then use the included map to locate the number. They will name the feature displayed at that number. If they get it correct, they get to roll the dice and move around the landform/feature themed game board. There is an answer choice board as an option to use during the game if you would like.

This game fits perfectly in a file folder. Included is a cover sheet, game board to staple inside folder, labeled map to be stapled inside, direction, answer key, answer choice board, and game cards.

The land features presented are:
1. Lake Superior
2. Lake Michigan
3. Lake Huron
4. Lake Erie
5. Lake Ontario
6. St. Lawrence River
7. Atlantic Coastal Plain
8. Appalachian Mountains
9. Gulf of Mexico
10. The Great Plains
11. Rocky Mountains
12. Continental Divide
13. Great Basin
14. Death Valley
15. Pacific Ocean
16. Atlantic Ocean

This game would most likely be used once the land features have been presented in class. It is also great for review before a unit test or before standardized testing.

These land features are studied at different grades depending on the state you teach in, but If you are a GA 4th grade teacher, this game works perfectly for the SS curriculum. All of these features are referred to in our studes and are named specifically in the Georgia Performance Standards.

Love it, just wish the map of the US was a little big more crisp. But it doesn't keep the kids from loving it:)
On  September 18, 2012Elementary Lesson Plans answered:
Hi Jessie... Thanks for the positive comment. Because I had to take a map, add sticky labels on it (that took a while) and then scan it back into the computer, I think it lost some of its crispness. It's not too bad though, so I thank you for understanding that this was the best way to get the marker images on it and the labels with the numbers. I'm glad your kids liked it. Mine have loved it for the last couple of years. Thank you again.

I have used this so many times; it's fantastic! The game is great, but when we are crunched for time, I just display the numbered map on the smart board and we name the locations aloud or on paper.

The map was not crisp and clear. Very fuzzy-I had to use a different map that was clearer. Other than that-great tool!
On  December 4, 2013Elementary Lesson Plans answered:
Thank you for your purchase. wow... I have not heard that before about the map. I actually have 12 of these games in my classroom that the kids play as partner games, and they all look perfectly fine. One suggestion would be to make sure your printer is set on a high quality color printing. That helps for maps. I'm glad you found a map that worked for you.
