Toss the Globe Geography Game
Need a quick and fun game to play with your kids that will get them thinking and learning ~ but still have a little fun?
We recently bought an inflatable globe and play a game of catch with it. Whoever catches the globe has to name where either of their thumbs have landed.
Depending on who is playing, they have to tell me capitals, a famous landmark in the area, important features of that country, etc. This is great for learning map features such as mountain ranges, rivers, and borders as well as identifying the continents and oceans for younger children.
It's quick, easy, gets a little energy out, and the globe is soft enough to not cause any major head trauma.
