Italian Kim's Game

Give each small group a copy of the map of Italy. Play Kim's game using this map.

After letting the groups study the maps for a given length of time, have them turn the map over and then ask questions such as:-

Which body of water lies to the south of Italy?
What city is almost in the centre of Italy?
What mountains lie in the north of Italy?
What is the name of island which looks like it is a soccer ball being kicked by Italy?
What colour is the country to the east of Italy on this map? etc.

To check, have the groups look at the map again and then repeat the questions so they can see if they had the correct answers.

The give each girl a piece of paper and a pencil and challenge her to draw the outline of Italy. While all of them probably know it is shaped like a boot, let them see how close they can come to the actual outline.
