Back to School Learning! Common Core with a fun twist!
Do you want a fun way to challenge your students and ease back into school? Continent Twister does just that!
Graphing and Measurement to make and read maps.
Problem Solving and Cooperative Group Work!

This project has it all! Continent Twister is a fun way to encourage students to delve into geography and map skills.

But you can use it at anytime throughout the year!
