You can use this list for your students when they need to take a test identifying the countries of Africa. All you'll need is a blank political map and this list on test day.
I like to build up to knowledge with my students practicing using online geography games like ilike2learn.com and those at Sheppard Software. They are a real knowledge acquisition accelerator.
You can see the List of African Countries in Chunks document in my store for a helpful study resource.
