Teach your students about some of the natural and human features around Australia with these Australian Geography Snap cards!
Australian Geography Snap is a versatile resource played using the same principles of traditional snap. The game should be played in groups of 4 to 6 and the deck should be dealt out evenly into piles of cards. Each snap card has a picture and information about a natural or artificial landform located in Australia. Each player starts with their decks face down and places cards onto the pile without looking at them beforehand. If a player places a card on top of a card that is identical, whoever snaps the pile fastest wins the round and they add the pile of cards to their existing hand. Keep playing until there are no cards left.
The cards can also be used for a variety of other fun games that will also engage your students in learning about the Australian landscape. They’re also fantastic to have on hand for fast finishers.
Two worksheets have been included in this resource to help reinforce your students’ knowledge about Australian geography. Simply select the primary or secondary worksheet based on your students’ needs. Use the lesson plan with teacher and game instructions to assist with implementing this resource in the classroom.
