Australian States and Territories - word search and mapping exercise

Australian States and Territories - word search and mapping exercise

Wordsearches (a.k.a. word maze) are a fun way for your students to learn the states and main territories of Australia. The wordsearch is coupled with a map that encourages your students not only to learn the names of the states/territories but also their location. The puzzles have three levels of difficulty: Easy - Medium - Hard. This will allow you to differentiate according to the abilities of students in your class. Each of the three puzzles has its own answer key. A large map (A4 size) is also provided in the file should you need to use a larger map for your students rather than the smaller one provided in each word search. Altogether there are 7 pages in this file: 3 word searches, 3 answer keys, 1 A4 sized map.

Draw arrows as to where what continent is each country  in (continent and country identification)

Draw arrows as to where what continent is each country in (continent and country identification)

Worksheet with several countries listed, the task is to draw arrows from each country as to what continent they are on, atlases can be very useful and help develop map reading/ atlas skills. Extension to the task is to work out whether if you were visiting the country if you were to drive/take a plane/ or a boat there, getting the children to think about travel, would you drive to Australia for example? This worksheet can be used as a base and edited as to how you like. I used this after the easter holidays are the countries listed were places the class teddies had visited over the holidays.
