Description

Introduce your students to the continents with our hands-on Seven Continents Lesson Plan.  This interactive lesson engages students as they learn facts about the seven continents and location of each continent on a world map.  Generalize understanding and engage creative imagination as students consider which other continent they may enjoying living on.

Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Resources Snippet:

  1. Distribute the Address page (½ page) to each student. Together, as a class, help students determine their “Continental Address”.
  2. Once completed, introduce students to the term “continent”. Ask if any of the students have ever been to another continent. Ask if they can name other continents.
  3. Allow for responses and discussion.
  4. Distribute The Seven Continents content pages. Read and review the information. Use the additional resources to help students learn the names and other information about the seven continents.
  5. Distribute the Activity pages. Review the instructions. Remind students when clipping the continents, they may use their world map as a guide. (Europe may be a bit tricky for younger students.)
  6. Circulate around the room during the activity to ensure students are gluing the continents in the correct positions on the construction paper. The white area that remains on the cutout that is not land may be shaded blue for the water.
  7. Distribute the Practice page. Check and review the students’ responses.
  8. Distribute the Homework page. Check and review the students’ responses.
  9. In closing, ask students: What continent would you like to live on, other than North America, and why?
  10. Allow for responses and discussion.

Seven Continents

The worksheets were very useful and assisted me in teaching my son about the Continents. Very easy to understand and pretty much self explanatory.
