Geography Game

This is a very straight forward way to study countries of the world. All of the kids enjoyed playing the game when they were about six years old.

Materials:
Internet and printer or Blank outline country map
Crayons or colored pencils
Letter dice
Object counters such as dried beans



Set up
  • The first step is to decide on a continent to study and then print out a Blank Outline Map.
  • Next color each country a different color.
  • When you are ready to play, each player chooses two dice.
  • Then decide on a winning number. This is the number of beans a play must collect to win the game. 30 would be a good place to start.
Play
  •  The first player rolls the two letter dice and then finds all the countries that begin with the letters rolled. A bean is placed on each country.
  • When the player is finished placing beans, other players have a chance to place beans on any missed countries.
  • The player removes and keeps the beans and play proceeds to the next player. 
  • When a player collects 30 beans, or then number agreed upon at the start, the game is over.
