Take map making to the next level with this lesson on the Middle East region! Instead of bored students copying out of a book, challenge students to create a map using absolute and relative location clues! A fun and different way to label maps!
This lesson begins with a preview mapping activity to help you gauge student's current knowledge. Then your class will compete in The Amazing Race and introduce themselves to the Middle East region at the same time. The lesson culminates with student's creating their own colored and labeled maps WITHOUT looking at a map of the region!
Includes: PowerPoint Presentation, Engage Map, Amazing Race Questions, Teacher Quick Reference Guide, "Where is it?" Mapping Directions and Student Map
