Large maps are a great tool to engage all students in every subject! This is a simple inexpensive way to enhance student learning of continents, countries, and the world! Whether you are teaching the original 13 colonies, Darwin's voyages or explaining Italy in the time of Romeo and Juliet, providing a large map for students will heighten their interest! Though this lesson focuses on Africa, it provides directions to create your map and 3 lessons. So, create an enlarged map of a place you are teaching and provide your students with fun, spatial thinking activities!
