Countries and Capitals of Europe – puzzle

Countries and Capitals of Europe – puzzle

Countries and Capitals of Europe – puzzle Students should match the countries with their capitals. There are 30 countries and their capitals. Some of the countries are located not only in Europe. I’ve included three different sizes of the same puzzle. The smaller size is only three pages and is great if you are going to print of individual copies for students to practice in class or at home. The larger size requires 8 pieces of paper and quite a bit of space to solve – fun for centers and group work. The extra-large size requires 24 pieces of paper. Cut out the puzzle pieces (or even better if your students do it themselves) and students are to solve the puzzle so that it matches the solution provided. If your students are going to cut out the pieces then no prep is needed – the puzzle is not in order. I’ve been using these puzzles for years with great success! I recommend printing the puzzles on colourful paper and laminating them. This way you only have to cut them out once and they will last for years! What is included in this product? • The solution to the puzzle – Pages 3 • The normal size puzzle – Pages 4 – 6 • The large size puzzle – Pages 7 – 14 • The extra-large size puzzle – Pages 15-38 • Questions and Answers in a table format for easy grading or you can cut these out to play a matching game – Pages 39 – 41 My students love doing these types of puzzles. This product can also be used as a perfect revision of the school work to do at home. All answers can be easily checked thanks to the included solution to the puzzle or questions and answers shown in a table. Thank you for checking my resources.

Comments from teachers using the quiz: “..... I have received only positive feedback from my Geography teachers. The students look forward to it each week and it has motivated them to become more aware of world events and current affairs. It doesn’t take too long before they make an effort to watch the news in order to win the title of Geo Hero for the week” “Fantastic idea.

Geography in the News ......... a great way to engage your students with the world of Geography outside the classroom!

Coastal Management - Conflict of Interest

Coastal Management - Conflict of Interest

Coastal management depends on the understanding and pulling together of the different people who use the coastline to cope with the physical processes impacting on the area. The different techniques used will have positive and negative impacts depending on their interests. Tourism, industry, fishing, trade and transport are all land uses along the coastline but with varying interests. These worksheets helps students to understand these different interests and how they can cause problems to one another. The different types fo hard and soft enginerring techniques are discussed as well as whether they think our coastlines should be protected or left to develop naturally.
