Continent outline cards
Once the child can name the continents on the continent globe and continent map I introduced them to the plain continent matching cards. All the continents are coloured orange, the child can no longer use the colour coding to name the continents. Some children are very good at this and can already distinguish the continents by the shape and outline, other children find it very difficult. If the child doesn't know a continent I'll guide him to get the continent globe and look for the continent with the same outline and shape. Once the child can recognise all the continents by the outline they will be able to use other globes and atlases with ease.
