Trick Geography's World Geography will help students remember the names of countries, their capitals, and topographical features through fun mnemonic tricks. Students tackle regions at a time, and learn to see shapes that correspond to the names of the countries; for example, the shape of Morocco is drawn as a maraca. Capitals are taught by adding an object to the initial country drawing that sounds like the capital name - so Rabat becomes a robot playing the maraca. Finally, geographical features are connected with simple sentences that build on the country name. Students fill in the blanks with the country name, capital name, or body of water/mountain/landscape feature. Students learn countries first and then progress to capitals and other information.
Trick Geography USA will help students remember the names of the US states, capitals and major bodies of water, mountains, deserts, and plains in the same fashion.
The Trick Geography World Teacher Guide and Trick Geography USA Teacher Guide include an introduction about how the curriculum works, notes on scheduling with suggested weekly lesson schedules and a sample daily lesson plan, optional activities, and directions and answers for each lesson. Step-by-step instructions make it simple to teach lessons that connect the shapes to the countries/states.
The Trick Geography World Test Book includes matching tests for the six units: Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, Oceana, and South America. Tests for the USA curriculum are included in the teacher's guide.
