This is a bundle of six map skills assignments for Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and the Pacific Islands, North America, and South America. Each is titled respectively "Let's Explore! Use a Map to Find Countries, Capital Cities, Landforms, and Bodies of Water."
These assignments include 20 questions each that require students to analyze a map of each continent for boundaries and borders, major cities, landforms, and bodies of water.
Here are two sample questions:
"What mountain range divides the European part of Russia from the Asian part of Russia?" and
"Name three nations located along the Bay of Bengal?"
This would make a great introduction to 5th or 6th grade students preparing to study the world for the first time.
It would also work well in a middle school classroom as map skills are still critical needs in these areas.
You might even consider each assignment as a "substitute lesson" and leave it for a substitute teacher on a day you are away from the classroom.
This assignment works well as an individual assignment or as a partner assignment.
