PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Here is a fun PowerPoint and game to teach the characteristics of an atlas and an almanac. The PowerPoint covers the information students need to know about atlases and almanacs. After learning about both reference books, students can then play a fun game to test their knowledge!

This is how I play the card game, but it could be played in many different ways or used as a center. When we play in the library, I divide the class into two teams. I put a bell in the middle of a table, then put one student from each team in front of the bell. I read a card and the first student to ring the bell gets to answer. They answer either atlas or almanac, depending on if the answer to the question could be found in an atlas or almanac. We play until each person on the team has had a turn.

You could adjust the questions to match your own personal atlases and almanacs and have students actually find the answers to the questions as well.
