Geography Game with Dr. Seuss!

2.8 based on 6 ratings

What You Need:

  • 2 or more players (the game is best with a lot of players)
  • Atlas (for kids)
  • Balloon
  • Markers (optional)

What You Do:

  1. Start by reviewing basic geography facts with the kids. Look over the atlas and talk about different countries, states, bodies of water, and anything else you want to review.
  2. Blow up the balloon. If you have markers, draw stripes on the balloon similar to the the one in Oh the Places You'll Go.
  3. Now have the kids stand in a circle; if there are just two players, have them stand facing each other.
  4. The object of the game is to hit the balloon in the air and keep it from touching the ground. Here's the twist: every time a player hits the balloon, he must say the name of a country in the world without repeating one that was already said. If you don't say a country or can't think of one fast enough, you're out!
  5. Continue until there is only one person standing, then play another round! For each round, choose a different geography theme. For example, you could have one round of states, one round of state capitals, one round of world capitals, and one round of bodies of water. Vary the topics to challenge your young learner and help him discover all the places he'll go!
