Improve Geography Skills with Scoot!

Are you looking for a fun way to learn continents and oceans with your students? This simple game will allow your students to identify continents by shape and locate the continents and oceans on Earth using a map.

To play, place the cards around the room in numerical order. Students look at the image or map on each card and write the continent or ocean it shows on their recording sheet. Then use a signal to motion students to rotate to the next card.

Through this activity, students will show they identify continents by their shape and locate the continents and oceans on a world map.
