This activity contains one sorting mat for each continent, a map of each continent and cards that match each continent. The cards include biomes and ancient civilizations located on the continent as well as facts about each continent. The idea is to match each of the cards to the correct continent.
This is a great way to introduce each continent before learning more about that continent. It is also great for children to review and organize information they have learned in a lesson. The activity encourages them to think critically about the information so they develop true understanding. Finally, this activity can be used to assess knowledge at the end of a unit.
Children will enjoy the colored photos and the hands-on nature of the activity!
