Product Description
A FUN GEOGRAPHY DETECTIVE GAME FOR COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD • GRADES 5–8


Find the Mystery Country is a set of 28 Task Cards that can be used for a fun, creative detective game about countries around the world. A thief named Theo has stolen extremely valuable, rare diamonds from a museum. He has escaped and eluded the police worldwide. Your students play detective and try to find him by eliminating countries one at a time using clues on Task Cards. The clues present your students with fascinating facts so they learn about the various countries as they search for Theo. Encourage the use of reference materials and maps in solving the clues that include capitals, currency, geography and map skills, national flags, major cities, and places of interest.

How to Play
• Students read each Task Card and eliminate one country based on the clue.

• They record their answer for each Task Card on the Student’s Answer Sheet by writing the name of the country where Theo is NOT located.

• Then they look at the Student’s Checklist and find the answer, or country, to be eliminated. The countries are listed in alphabetical order. They place an (X) on the line to eliminate the country where Theo is NOT hiding.

• After all 28 Task Cards have been completed, only one country should be left unmarked – Theo’s hiding place.

Also included in this unit are:
• a Student’s Answer Sheet
• a Student’s Checklist
• an Answer Key
• an Award Certificate
• directions for playing Scoot
