Trick Geography Europe 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 Croatia is drawn to be a crow. Capitals are taught by adding an object to the initial country drawing that sounds like the capital name - so Zagreb becomes a grub in the crow's beak. 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. Tests are also included.
The Trick Geography Europe Teacher Guide includes 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. Tests with a test answer key are also included.
Grades 3 & Up. The elementary schedule covers two maps per week (for an 8-week program) while the middle school & up schedule covers two to three maps per week (for a 6-week program).
