To review the locations of states, cities, and waterways of the United States.
1 and 1/2 class periods
The class will be divided into two teams. Each team will try to identify the states, cities, and waterways on the map on page 98C.
Numbers on the map represent states. Letters represent cities and waterways. The game begins when the teacher announces a number or a number and letter –– 1b, 2a, and so on. The first person in class to raise their hand will be called on. If they correctly identify the state, city, or waterway, their team scores 10 points. If they are incorrect, or do not respond immediately when called upon, a person from the other team can answer and score 10 points. But if they also fail to identify the state, city, or waterway, the teacher will announce it.
When a correct answer is given, students should write the place name in the appropriate space on the answer sheet.
Class members may not use a textbook, an atlas, or any other reference source during the game.
Full Game Rules are provided on the lesson pages.
Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
