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 Ancient and Classical Eras (Eras 1 and 2). After labeling the map, students then use the map to answer four analysis questions, which focus on identifying major changes and continuities from the eras.
Two files are included in the zip file: map directions and a blank world regions map.
