Are you embarking on a geography study this year? Want to explore the world without leaving your couch or kitchen table? With these ten geography games, your family can easily learn about the world around them and reinforce map facts in a fun way. Besides the academics of learning geography, your kids will learn those frequently questioned socialization skills and boost family relationships by playing these ten games.
Have children who love puzzles? Pick up this world puzzle and start studying countries and continents while you play. If you’re interested in world landmarks, I’ve seen the Colosseum, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Taj Mahal and more.
If you’re studying U.S. Geography and learning states and capitals, these Wrap Ups are a must. You can review with your children, or allow them to use the self checking option. These are wonderful for tactile learners.
Go cross country without leaving your house! We love this game that explores the fifty states. (2 to 4 players)
Want to expand your travel plans a bit? Take a look at Name that Country, and learn about the world.
6. States and Capitals Flash Cards
Flash Cards are a simple but effective way to review facts. Let your children quiz each other while you make dinner. I also found a Countries of the World version as well.
We have this peel and stick map in our homeschool room and love it! It’s perfect for families with young children, with loads of reusable stickers.
Players learn the names, capitals, nicknames, shapes and positions of the states through a myriad of visual teasers, language riddles and geography challenges. After playing, you’ll see that there’s more to the 50 States than meets the eye! (up to 4 players, ages 8 and over)
This handy pack has 5 games in 1! Use these 50 cards to explore countries, capitals, populations and more. Don’t miss the US version, too.
