We are now headed into Africa with Challenge A, which warrants a new set of Africa countries and capitals flashcards! In addition to drilling which capital goes with which country, we’re covering up the country name that’s on the bottom of each card to drill the countries by shape/location. You can download the Africa Countries & Capitals Flashcards by clicking on the link below:
Fortunately, we have a head start on African countries due to Kathy Troxel’s Audio Memory Geography Songs CD/Booklet. You can even download some free maps (“Geography Songs Companion Packet”) to go with Kathy Troxel’s songs here.
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 Africa (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 bit more mastered before going into Challenge A so you can focus more on physical features and drawing. Another option would be to use our Printable World Atlas to trace and label African countries for the remainder of this year.
