Product Description

If you teach Social Studies and are looking for a way to get your students active, talking with each other, cooperating, and thinking - then this might be just right for you! My students like when we have little class competitions and this activity has students working in groups to match 20 landmarks with 20 maps that each have a red dot depicting the location of one of the landmarks.

The 20 Landmarks Included Are:

  • Cape Canaveral
  • Denali Mountain
  • Mount Rushmore
  • Mesa Verde
  • The Alamo
  • Niagara Falls
  • Golden Gate Bridge
  • Devils Tower
  • Pearl Harbor Memorial
  • The Bean (Cloud Gate)
  • Ellis Island
  • Little Rock Central High School
  • Hoover Dam
  • Space Needle
  • Independence Hall
  • Civil Rights Memorial
  • Monticello
  • Glacier National Park
  • Gateway Arch
  • Trail of Tears Memorial

Instructions for play are included as well as an answer key via PowerPoint that shows each landmark, the map location, and a brief background of the landmark.

Not only is this a fun class activity, but you'll also get a feel for the organizational skills of your students plus a chance to start conversations with them while they are working about how they are going about the task.

What's also nice about this activity is the students will put all of the items back in the baggies you provide (highly recommended) so you can store them away until the following year!
