I used this activity as a way to sum up information learned from the Map Skills PowerPoint presentation. This is a worksheet that can be completed individually or with partners. The object is that the students create a map of their own country and incorporate ideas of map skills and creating to create the map. This worksheet has space for students to create a rough draft of their map. I would then have them use a piece of computer paper to make a larger and neater version that includes color.
There is also an AMP UP YOUR COUNTRY section that is meant as an extension tool or to keep students occupied that finish much more quickly than others.
Heads Up! One part that I had to be sure to explain to the whole class was that Country Borders just means the outline of your country.
