7 Continents: A Love Story

7 Continents: A Love Story

Author: Carla Vigil

At the end of this lesson, students will be able to use a map, globe, or a mental map to recall the 7 continents and at least one fact about each.

This is a brief lesson reviewing the names and a few interesting facts about each continent.  This lesson is designed to be used in 2nd-4th grades as needed for introduction of the continents or a review which will assist students in remembering the names of each.  This lesson uses the "hook" of a funny anecdote to help students remember the 7 continents.  It also includes a brief review of the 4 hemispheres as well.  In addition, this lesson includes a Word file to be completed for accountability for the student as well as a link to a song which will further differentiate the lesson and assist students in remembering the names of the continents.
