Product Description
"Nichts bildet und kultiviert den gesunden Verstand mehr als Geographie." Immanuel Kant ~ German philosopher (1724 - 1804)


When I asked my class the question once, 'Where's Madrid ?', a student responded 'In Italy.'


That's when I was taken by surprise at how little geography today's students know and I decided to do something about it.


In this Pac I present 30 European countries. We learn them five at a time along with their capital cities - in German, of course. There is a test after numbers 1 to 5, then 6 to 10, then 1 to 10, then 11 to 15, then 1 to 15, etc. The final test covers all 30 countries and capitals.


I show an overhead of a blank map of Europe and then number the countries - five at a time. Students have a handout of that set of five numbers.


I ask first if anyone knows what country no. 1 is. Some will know the name in English but not German, so I then reveal the answer on the overhead and ask what the capital city is. Again, some may know the English name, so I reveal the German name on the overhead.


Students fill in this information on their handout, study those five countries that night, then we have a test on them the next day. Tests are matching to make grading quick & easy.


We swap papers and mark all tests in class - except for the last big test of all 30 countries. This is fully explained in the Pac.


This Pac covers only country names and capital cities, not other geographic features such as rivers and mountains.


Everything is classroom-ready so you can use it immediately.

You get:

* 6 maps with groups of five countries each
* 11 tests
* all answer keys
* plus a short introductory overhead



Simply take ten minutes of class time to go over five countries, give the test the next day, then give the cumulative test, and go on to the next five countries.
