To become familiar with the names and locations of the countries, cities, waterways, and landforms of Asia.
2 class periods
The activity begins with class members labeling countries, capital and major cities, landforms, bodies of water, and rivers on a 2-page map of Asia. The map is formed by joining the second and third lesson pages together. Places and physical features will need to be found using a map of Asia in an atlas or textbook.
Once they have finished the first section, students use their completed maps to identify countries, cities, waterways, and landforms in a series of descriptions that conclude the lesson.
