This is a game that my students really enjoyed playing to review for their quiz over landforms and water forms. The Ohio Standards for 4th grade Earth Science required students to be able to identify and describe: stream, delta, floodplain,hill, mountain/range, valley, sinkhole, cave, canyon, glacier, dune, spring, volcano, and island. All of these are included in this set plus ocean and river. Print these on card stock for more durability and longer use.
Have students get into groups of 3-4. Shuffle all the cards. In each turn a student will draw a card and read the word to the person on their left. That person needs to give a close definition of that word. If they are correct, that person can keep the card, If not, the card goes back in the pile. If the person draws an OOPS card, the person they are reading to has to return all their cards back to the pile. The goal is to get all the cards in the stack.
This game is great to review or reinforce the definitions of these land and water forms!
