Sandpaper Globe (Demonstrates Land and Water)
Painted Globe (Demonstrates Ocean and Continent)
The daily interest in the geography materials continues. We made up this game recently. As we sing the continents' song, my daughter spins the painted globe. When the song ends she points to a continent on the painted globe and names it. She then finds that continent on the sandpaper globe.
Matching Birds to Their Native Continent: I have changed out the animals for these birds. We sing the continents song and because the map is so large my daughter enjoys hopping onto the continent as we sing it's name.
These birds came from a Big Lots a few years ago, before I even had any children. Surprisingly, they are realistic and accurate and the package included birds from almost every continent.
I looked up the birds on the internet for information and typed up a few sentences on each bird. We read the information and take a moment to study the bird. Then it is put on it's native continent.
