Geography Terms • Detective Game • Social Studies
Great Activity for the End-of-the-Year!
Where’s Wendy? • Grades 5–8 is a set of 28 Task Cards filled with clues to help your students find where Wendy is hiding. This is a FUN way to teach geographical terms as your students eliminate possible locations using the clues until only one geography term is left – Wendy’s location! The Task Card clues provide practice and reinforcement of geography terms such as tundra, atoll, peninsula, delta, isthmus, archipelago, and more. Be sure your students are familiar with the terms and definitions before playing Where’s Wendy? or a class game of Scoot.
Also included are:
• a Note to Students
• an Answer Key
• a Student’s Answer Sheet
(to record the geography terms being eliminated for each clue)
• a Student’s Checklist
(students place a check mark by each geography term eliminated for each Task Card)
• an Alphabetical List of Geography Terms
• Task Cards with Definitions for the geography terms
(ideal for geography centers or bulletin board displays)
Two Task Cards have been left blank as templates for additional terms you might want to add.
• directions for playing Scoot
The Task Cards are ideal for partner work, individualized instruction, or for playing
Scoot as a whole class activity. For extra fun, divide your class into teams and
challenge the teams to see which can be the first to find Wendy.
