Four printable games (sorting game, memory game, standard bingo, speed bingo) that can all be played with the same cards. The five pages of cards included in the game are:
- Two province sheets. One has visual cues in the form of flags (for introducing the game), and the other one doesn’t (for advanced players).
- Two capital sheets. Again, one has visual cues in the form of flags (for introducing the game), and the other one doesn’t (for advanced players).
- One flag sheet. Use it if you want to reinforce knowledge of provinces and their flags, as opposed to provinces and their capitals.
You can buy a classroom version with posters here.
When playing the games, players first rely on the flag symbols to match the provinces and their capitals successfully. Over time, players learn to associate the provinces and capitals without the flag as a visual cue. At that point, players can start using the cards without visual cues, and the difficulty of the game increases.
And the best feature of the game? It actually consists of FOUR games! You can play them all using the same cards. Read more about their rules here.
