PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a challenging geography/map skills assignment for upper elementary and middle school students that teaches students how to properly use cardinal directions (north, east, south, west) and intermediate directions (northeast, northwest, southeast, southwest) with a map of Europe.

So, what makes this assignment different from all of the others that you have used? The assignment is written so that students must interact with the map before they use cardinal and intermediate directions.

They must first properly label the cardinal and intermediate directions on the included map's compass rose. Then, they must locate and label 15 European cities and 10 bodies of water. After successfully locating these places, there are 10 questions that require them to think about how people move from one city to another.

Here is a sample question:

"Akalena is a marine biologist studying life in the Mediterranean Sea. She will return home to Kiev next month. In which direction will she travel? _______"

This assignment is effective as a way to introduce this concept or as a "refresher" later in the school year. Either way, it's proven successful in my classroom. Consider it today!
