GEOGRAPHY EUROPEAN COUNTRIES AND CAPITAL CITIES 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. Students really enjoy being quiz master too.
Revisit regularly - can students beat their own record?
The set contains all EUROPEAN COUNTRIES AND CAPITAL CITIES, including some island communities such as the FAROE ISLANDS. There are also some countries, such as ARMENIA, which are often classed as located in either EUROPE or ASIA.
There are two quizzes and challenges:
QUIZ/CHALLENGE 1: the questions prompt for a capital city from a particular country
QUIZ/CHALLENGE 2: the 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 cards are numbered, but can also be asked in a random order: simply place all the cards in a bowl, box or tin, and work your way through!
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 - this is a very popular activity!
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.
There is also an alphabetical by country reference list of all countries and capitals, which students find useful to read through before playing. Laminate the cards and reference sheets if you can - you’ll be able to use them for years to come!
The quizzes are also available as a combined resource with my EUROPE COUNTRIES, CAPITAL CITIES AND FLAGS 70 POSTERS PACK, at the special price of $4.75 - have a look at it here when you get chance:
THANK YOU AND ENJOY THE QUIZZES!
