This is a big set of places! The mix of city and country locations makes this flashcard set suitable for a traditional lesson about summer or winter vacation: Where did you go for vacation? or Where would you like to go?

For younger students, you can sort the cards into “city” and “country” places and then ask students which is their favourite.

If your class knows the comparative form, use these places flashcards to debate which place is better for vacation.

For example, tape “desert” and “ice rink” flashcards to the board and have students generate comparative sentences. Take notes beneath: The desert is… warmer, drier, more beautiful. The ice rink is… colder, more fun, etc. The place with the most positive sentences wins.

    These are great. Any chance you could do flash cards for countries?

  2. Karen

    Thanks! I like getting suggestions 🙂 What do you have in mind? Flags or national symbols?

    • Marco Campos

      How about both??? And how about including zones of countries??? For teachers teaching in America (continent), they can use countries from that same continent. Teachers (my case) teaching in Asia, can use countres from Asia. And so on…
      Do you like this one?

      • Karen

        Thanks for the feedback!

        So just to be clear, you mean cards for countries grouped by continent not zones within countries (regions)? Countries in North America, countries in South America, countries in Asia, etc.
