This activity allows students to use the world atlas or a world map to discover answers to geography riddles. Students must know directional words, the locations of the four hemispheres, and must also know locations of oceans and other landforms. This is a great way to give students extra practice. I used this activity with my gifted and talented students when they were working on an "Around the World" unit. They really enjoyed these and asked for more. Because they asked for more, I had them write their own riddles using the world map and atlas.
