This Prezi shows an introduction to maps. It covers the basics... compass roses, projection, parts of a map, different types of maps, and how to read latitude and longitude. There is a sample map on the handouts to label.
This prezi is good for 6-12 grade. I have used it in my 9th grade World Geography class. I made the handout specifically for my special ed students, but it can be used with all students. For my pre-AP class, I used only the prezi and had them sketch a sample map and their notes on plain paper.
Prezi works best in Google Chrome. Also make sure that you have the most updated version of Flash. If you have an issues accessing the prezi, message me and we can troubleshoot.
Included: prezi link/info and a two-sided handout with fill-in-the-blanks (in PDF format).
