PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you teach ESL in a classroom with students from around the world, then the Where are You From? World Map Poster is a great classroom decoration and first day of class activity, along with my In Your Own Words Poster

On the first day of school, I put the poster up and hand out Post-it notes to students. Students write their name and country on the Post it Note and stick it on their flag. Now the other students go around and make a question for each student either based on their country or flag. Typical questions include:

What do you eat in Uzbekistan?
Why is your flag green and yellow?
How did you fly here to the US from Africa?
How many people live in Russia?

Students find the person they have a question for and ask their question. After everyone has asked one question, and hopefully had some kind of follow-up discussion, students report back one new thing they learned.

Beyond first day activities, maps are just a fun thing to have in the class and the flag map adds so much more than a regular political map.

Beginners can use it to learn countries, flags, nationalities, languages, and even colors.

During the Olympics and World Cup, we often track the winners first thing in the morning or last thing before class goes out.

Anytime there's an international incident in the news, we mark it on the map.

Students giving presentations can use the map as well.
