The cards can be used to introduce students to countries, their flags, capitals, and populations. The intent is to allow the teacher to copy and attach to index cards. The cards can then be used for drilling, as well as for matching and memory games. I have utilized the cards with a world map to good effect. I have found that only once you have internalized a country's name or concept, can you begin to speak and/or think about it. After students learn country names, I then begin sharing with them further details about their histories, fun facts, etc.
