IDEAL FOR CREATING AN INSTANT INTRODUCTION TO EUROPE AND PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING GEOGRAPHICAL KNOWLEDGE! This combined pack of 70 posters features all the countries, capitals cities and flags in EUROPE, and four multiple-choice quizzes.
Brighten up your classroom with this set of posters showing EUROPEAN countries, capitals and flags. They give your learning environment a great multicultural look and feel, and are a great visual prompt when you are discussing world geography in general, and EUROPE in particular. There may be a number of countries and capitals that students don't know, or are not aware of, so the posters can certainly help students develop their general knowledge and understanding of EUROPE and its geography. I’ve included a range of islands, such as the FAROE ISLANDS, to extend students’ knowledge of EUROPE a little further, and I’ve shown some countries, for example ARMENIA, that are often classed as belonging either to EUROPE or to ASIA. I’ve also included two posters for some countries, such as GREECE, officially known as the HELLENIC REPUBLIC - you can choose either the more frequently-used GREECE or the HELLENIC REPUBLIC to display.
THE QUIZZES are suitable for any appropriate year group, at any time of the school year. Students can develop their knowledge of the geography of EUROPE in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, giving their memory a workout at the same time! The quizzes work well as whole-group team quizzes, and are also perfect as a pair or small-group activity.
There are 4 quizzes:
QUIZ 1: the oral questions prompt for a capital city from a particular country
QUIZ 2: the oral questions prompt for a country from a particular capital city
QUIZ 3: the written questions prompt for a capital city from a particular country
QUIZ 4: the written questions prompt for a country from a particular capital city
Each question has 3 answers to choose from. The correct answers are given in blue (CHALLENGE 1) or green (CHALLENGE 2), and also underlined/in bold if you prefer not to print in color - this ensures that all students can participate. The quiz card templates allow students to put their memory to the test in a different way, and to apply their knowledge very practically: they can create their own set of multiple-choice questions for each other. They can also put their knowledge to the test in writing, by completing the two recall and write quizzes, which prompt for both the capital city, and the country - great when played against a timer.
I've described the resource as suitable for Grades 6-12, because it really does depend on when you are focusing on EUROPE in your learning programme - the posters look great in any appropriate learning environment, and the quizzes work well across a very broad range of grades.
THANK YOU AND ENJOY YOUR JOURNEY!
