Continent Club

Have Fun with Geography!

Covid Protocol: Continent Club is an at home activity! Study the provided materials below and then you can ask a parent/guardian to test you. Start with the 7 continents and 20 geographic countries/places. If you get all 20 correct, try the challenge. Most of all - HAVE FUN learning geography!

What? Enjoy this opportunity to spend time with your children learning about the world.

Where? Below are all of the study materials and detailed volunteer information. Additional information boards will be located in the library and cafeteria, including a trivia question for each continent check. Winners receive prizes.

When? Checks are currently at the end of the month with a parent/guardian. When volunteers are able to be in school again - Students study at home and are individually tested on Thursday mornings 8:30 to 10:30 in the cafeteria (see below):

Students are asked to identify the 7 continents, and 20 countries/geographical features of that month’s featured continent at each check, with emphasis on learning the first four countries. Students receive a stamp in their passport for every four places they correctly identify.

Students who get all 20 correct can go a step further and take “THE CHALLENGE”: identifying 10 additional geographical features. Correct identification of the 20 checks and 10 challenges earns foreign money.

Students who get all checks and challenges correct for the year (or top percentage) earn additional prizes and recognition.
