This is such a fun activity for the first few lessons of your Geography class. It could be used to introduce the Geography concepts of Space, Place, Interconnection, Environment, Scale and Sustainability OR as a refresher of these concepts.
This activity has each student provided with a card at random, each card shows either the name of the concept, the definition or some examples. Once they have received their card, students will need to move around the room discussing the information they have in order to 'reconnect' with the 2 students who match their card.
At this point I have students create a poster to display around our classroom and refer to as we continue our study of geography.
You will receive 2 pdf sheets. This activity has been created in two ways, the first with the type of cards in matching fonts (concepts, definitions and examples) and the second with each concept with its own font, so the name, definition and examples are the same. This visual aid may assist lower grades to match their cards together.
