This map activity allows students to review the major world regions and identify examples of societies, cities, empires, and/or civilizations that existed during the Modern Era (Era 5). After labeling the map, students then use the map to answer two analysis questions, which focus on identifying major changes and continuities from the era.
Two files are included in the zip file: map directions and a blank world regions map.
