If you teach about the geography of Africa and would like your students to become familiar with the names of the African countries then this set of African Country Flash Cards might be just what you are looking for.
Included in this set are three different choices of flash cards for your students.
- Print the set of Africa political maps that have an individual country shaded in with red colored pencil and the name of the country on the back. This option is 30 pages that would be printed back to back and students can cut them out and use them right away. I prefer to print on cardstock so the name isn't visible through the paper.
- Print the political maps of Africa that have an individual country name on the back but don't have any of the countries shaded in. This is also 30 pages that would also be printed back to back. Again the preference is to print on cardstock, and your students would use an atlas to locate where the countries are and shade them in on their own.
- Print the political maps of Africa that don't have names on the back as well as a copy of the List of African Countries file. These maps are on 15 pages and do not get printed back to back since students would have to shade the countries in on their own as well as write the name of the country on the back.
I've found that many students enjoy practicing flash cards like this over the plethora of online country identification games. The reason being is that students can make two piles as they practice identifying the countries. One stack is of the countries they correctly identified as they go through them and the other stack is the countries they still need more practice with.
The 57 countries included are in accordance with the countries listed on the 2014 CIA World Factbook
