Learn Countries with Games

Learning the names and locations of all of the countries is not something you can do in one day. However, such a task can be accomplished. In addition to lots of practice reciting the names playing geography games can help you accomplish this task.

Trying to learn the names of all 196 countries will take some time. To make this process run smoother trying memorizing the countries one continent at a time. Choose one of the continents with the fewest countries first. Both South America and Australia and is surrounding islands are good candidates for this. There are 12 countries in South America and 14 make up Oceanic. Work your way through North America with 23 countries, Asia with 44 countries, Europe with 47 countries, and eventually Africa with 54 countries.

As you study the countries of a continent have a friend or family member quiz you. World map puzzles that consist of pieces that are the shapes of each country can be used as a fun way to learn specific countries. If you have access to such puzzles you can trace around the pieces to make flash cards that have the shape of a country on one side and the name of it on another. You could also make a deck of cards with two sets of cards with the shape and name of each country on it. Such cards can be used in a game of Go Fish or Memory.

Another great activity is to print out a black and white map of the continent that you are studying. Color in each country a different color. This will help you remember the name and shape of each country. You can also use a map that is not labeled and label each country to help you memorize them all as well. The more fun you have while you are learning geography the easier it will be to learn new things.
