Here we go! It’s a new semester, so we are heading into Asia with Challenge A. (Starting with these Asia country/capital flashcards, I think this month may prove to show a slight obsession with all things geography.) A few disclaimers – provisos – quid pro quo about these cards:
- For the Asian island locator maps, you may need to imagine which islands are highlighted. (It’s far-too-likely I will not get around to sprucing them up with better island locator maps.) To accommodate for this challenge, we may be placing the cards on a ring in the order that we plan to draw them. (What order is that? I’m not sure just yet. But the photo below shows how we placed the Americas flashcards in order. Isn’t that helpful?)
- Unlike the European Flashcards, these cards don’t include an option without the names on the country side. To drill which country is which, we are simply covering up the country name that’s on the bottom of the flashcard.
- This set includes the Middle East.
- The only countries/capitals listed are the ones we memorize in CC Challenge A.
Alrighty! You can download the Asia & Middle East Countries & Capitals Flashcards by clicking on the link below:
I said it (more than) once before, and I’ll say it again (and again). If you happen to have an older elementary student who has been through the Foundations cycles a few times and needs an extra challenge as a sixth grader, it would be quite beneficial to start memorizing the countries and capitals of Asia (and/or any other part of the world, for that matter). Although it’s not necessary to tackle it before Challenge, it would be nice to have a few countries and capitals mastered before going into Challenge A so you can focus more on physical features and drawing.
