a fun, end-of-the-school-year activity!
Where in the World Is Wilma? is a set of 28 Task Cards that can be used for a fun, creative detective game about capital cities around the world. Wilma is hiding and your students play detective and try to find her by eliminating capital cities using clues on Task Cards. The clues present your students with fascinating facts so they learn about the various capital cities as they search for Wilma. Encourage the use of reference materials and maps in solving the clues.
• Students read each Task Card and eliminate one capital city based on the clue.
• They record their answer for each Task Card on the Student’s Answer Sheet by writing the name of the city where Wilma is NOT located.
• Then they look at the Student’s Checklist and find the answer, or capital city, to be eliminated. The cities are listed in alphabetical order. They place an (X) on the line to eliminate the capital city where Wilma is NOT hiding.
• After all 28 Task Cards have been completed, only one capital city should be left unmarked – Wilma’s location!
Also Available: Where in the World Is Wyatt? Same format but all new capital cities.
