Identifying the countries and capitals of South America

This lesson is part of Exploring Brazil, a Geography unit designed for students in KS2 (Y4-6), but can also be taught as a stand alone lesson.

It is a great introduction to South America. The presentation first locates the continent on a world map and then explores its political and physical geography.

There is a choice a shorter or a longer activity. In both, students identify the countries and capitals of South America. They are differentiated three ways:


Activity 1 (shorter):

Easier – Students have letter clues for countries and capitals marked on their map.
Medium – Students have capitals marked on their map.
Harder – Students have to mark capitals on their map themselves.

Extension – Students identify the capital cities of each country.


Activity 2 (longer):

Easier – Students have boxes for each country name and capitals marked on their map.
Medium – Students have capitals marked on their map.
Harder – Students have a blank map and have to mark their capitals themselves.

Extension – Students add other features to their map (e.g. Amazon rainforest) and complete a key.
