Product Description
In an effort to raise Geography Awareness, here is a blank Mercator Projection World Map.

I use this blank map in my lessons - especially at the start of the year.

Simple Lesson Plan for "Mercator Blank World Map":

Materials: Printout of Blank World Map
Time: 30-35 Minutes

Have your students answer the following questions as a "do now" or as an "exit ticket" (make sure your students have put away all their electronic devices - and close up the atlases and cover up the laminated world map hanging in your room).

Can you :

(1.) Name all the oceans spelled correctly?
(2.) Name the continents of the world spelled correctly?
(3.) Identify the state and capital you live in currently. (Answers will vary)

Use your students' answers as a formal assessment. Or, simply as a gauge for how much geography they do indeed know (and how much geography you have to teach).
