Our series of riddles for kids with a geography theme continues today with six which all have New York City as the answer.
To use that sixth idea, read them the clue on the first line and ask them to guess what they think the answer is. As the first clue only indicates that the answer is a city, there’s a good chance that they won’t guess correctly.
If they don’t get the correct answer after the first clue, read them the second clue and ask them to guess again. Keep doing this until they either work out that the answer is New York City or they run out of clues.
