    My kids combine recess with memorizing the continent names. While they jump rope, they chant the continents in this order: North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, Antarctica. If you say one on every jump, the rhythm works and it's easy to memorize. After we do that a couple of days, they have to come to the map and say the chant and point to the right one. If they can do it, I give them a mini-candy bar. Of course that's just to locate and memorize them, but it's a good beginning.
