This is a great introduction to the class and I use a lot of the fun facts to introduce topics that will be covered later on. This product is a zipped file with a 3 page packet of countries and two power points; one for South America and one for Central. The power point slides include a map with flag overlaid, the country capital, and some fun facts. I copy the packets and ask the kids to color over the greyscale flags as we go through the slides as well as putting a star where the capital is on the map. I do one 50 minute period for each powerpoint, but it would easily be extended by showing videos.
