Blaine and I are super excited to share about this free earth science game!! It's perfect to play after you finish our earth science leg.
In Atlas Run, you race around a map, attempting to get from the south pole to the north pole. You answer questions about our planet to move and of course, there are a few fun surprises along the way!
We love to play this game in our house and we are excited that we finally get to share it with you all!!
This game is a bit unique because you can choose to review earth science and geology or just one or the other, depending on the game cards you use. At the Sassafras house, we like to use them all!
We have to also mention the special squares, which is where the game really gets interesting!! I always land on these, which is how I beat Blaine every time - that and my stellar intellect!
It's super simple to win Atlas Run. All you have to do is be the first player to arrive at the “Finish” square at the North Pole!
You can use the Atlas Run Cards for a game of trivia. Simply have a caller choose the card and read the question. You can ask the question to a specific player or to a specific team. Each correct answer earns a point. The player or team that has the most points once the stack of cards has been gone through wins the game.
Well, we hope you enjoy this super fun, free, earth science game! Before you play this game, you can use the following resources to learn more about our planet.
*Note - Atlas Run originally had questions for both earth science and geology. It was updated in August 2018 to only contain earth science questions. If you are looking for a game for geology review, we recommend Rocks Slides and Arrows.
