Review map skills while getting to know your students through these geography lessons and a cumulative art project that uses map skills. Your planning is done for the next few weeks as your students work and you can even create a fantastic bulletin board for your classroom at the same time.

  • lessons on titles, landforms, map labels, cardinal and intermediate directions, the compass rose, relative location, reading a legend, scale, equator, Prime Meridian, longitude, and latitude. These are great for review or introductions.
  • complete lesson plans to teach a variety of map reading skills with modifications so you can easily differentiate for your students.
  • student mapping pages.
  • answer keys.
  • a review activity of all the map skills.
  • quizzes with answer keys.

  • Canadian/British and American spellings.
  • customary and metric measurements.
