Fashionable geography

Here is a geography game my children really enjoyed. I asked them to go and bring various items of clothings. When they did, we proceded to read the labels and then to find the countries of origin on the map or globe. They were amazed to see how many exotic places their clothes had come from. This kind of games can also lead to discussions of textile production, clothes construction, history and of course geography.

Another game we played was to think of various family and friends and where they were from and find their locations on the map or globe. The idea is to make it personal and exciting and therefore less dry and uninteresting.
