I’m proud to know them. They are both wonderfully generous with their time and knowledge. I learned how to improve my Pinterest account from Kim when she did a Google+ Hangout for Multicultural Kid Blogs meet up. I still have my notes from her session.

Continent Fortune Teller Learning Game 1

Continent Fortune Teller Learning Game

First make the fortune-teller. You can use origami paper or copy paper cut into a square. Fold it in half. Open and fold along the diagonals.

Next, fold each side corner into the middle so that you end up with a smaller sized square.

Turn the square over so that the folded sides face away from you, and fold up the corners again, making a smaller square.

Now, carefully fold the square into a fortune-teller.

Next, open each triangle and write one of the following on each half of the triangle: Find North America, Find South America, Point to Australia, Point to Europe, Find Asia, Find Africa, Point to Antarctica, Point and Name an Ocean. If your children are older like mine, have them point to and name a country in each continent as well.  Or a country capital.

Continent Fortune Teller Learning Game 7

Write the numbers 1 through 8 on the inside triangles.

Continent Fortune Teller Learning Game 6

Now you are ready to play. Use a map of the world, a globe, or a place mat with a map of the world on it.

  1. Player one places their fingers in the fortune-teller and opens to show four numbers.
  2. Player two picks one of the four numbers and player one moves the fortune-teller back and forth that many times.
  3. Players two picks another number. Player one then opens the fortune-teller to read their task.
  4. Player two completes the task using the map or globe.
  5. The game repeats with player two holding the fortune-teller.
