This world geography scavenger hunt idea is a great activity to use with any age. It can be used for kids in the classroom as part of a school geography lesson or in a youth group that’s seeking to increase world awareness.
Alternatively, you could organize it as an adult scavenger hunt at a travel-themed party to add a competitive game to the evening’s fun.
Here’s how to organize it:
- List of countries ending in A (see below)
- World maps
This map scavenger hunt can be done with teams of any size – individually, in pairs or small teams. It really depends on how large your group is and how many world maps you have.
Give each person / team a map, piece of paper and a pen. Their task is to search the map to find as many different countries ending in A as they can – they should then list these on the paper.
Set a time limit that they have to be completed by and set them hunting!
The person or team who has the longest list of countries once the time is up.
