Trick Geography Africa 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 to be 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 a 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. Tests are also included.
Grades 3 & Up. The elementary schedule covers two maps per week (for a 5-week program) while the middle school & up schedule covers two to three maps per week (for a 7-week program).
The Trick Geography Africa Teacher Guide includes an introduction about how the curriculum works, notes on scheduling with a suggested weekly lesson schedule and 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.
