Saving Santa - A Fun Geography Activity - Perfect for Christmas and December!
This is a fun activity for the month of December that gives kids a chance to really study maps, globes, atlases, etc.
Students are given a world location that Santa is at and they must find that location using any resource they can. There is a series of questions they must answer before they can direct Santa back to their hometown.
My students LOVE this activity. I set out globes, maps, atlases, iPads, and laptops and let them get to work. I also let them work in pairs even though each has their own location to work with. They can help each other out this way.
