Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To find the names of various places and geographic features using maps in an atlas or the textbook.

TIME:
15 minutes for each of five contests

This activity includes five contests that make it fun to learn about various places and geographic features throughout Africa.

Contest 1
Students use an atlas or a map in their textbook to help them identify the places and geographic features described. Each correct answer is worth either 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 points. A perfect score is 100.

Contest 2
In Part 1, students are challenged to unscramble letters that form the names of countries found in Africa. A map of the continent is again needed for this Contest. In Part 2, they must see how many cities you can find and circle on the word search puzzle.

Contest 3
The names of 11 countries, 7 cities, and 6 waterways of Africa are hidden in a series of sentences. Class members must try to find each name, underline it in the sentence, and cross it out in the answer list.

Here is an example of how a place name is hidden.
