PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This mapping activity allows students to map the political and physical features of California.

I suggest using an 11x17 piece of paper for the map, but an 8x11 piece of paper will work. Please make at least three copies of the California map.

Depending on the age level of your students this mapping activity will take 15 minutes to a ½ hour to complete. Students just follow simple instructions to complete the maps. The mapping activity can be easily modified by the teacher to work with any atlas or age level. My students enjoy this activity and it helps them visualize and learn about the geography of California. Find a free blank map of California and print out at least three copies:
1st Map of California (Physical Features)
2nd Map of California (Political Features)
3rd Map (Blank Map of California for students to study with)

The following website offers great free maps of California:
