An 8x11 piece of paper will work great, but I suggest using an 11x17 piece of paper for the maps if your students are under the age of twelve. Please make at least three copies of each map.
Depending on the age level of your students this mapping activity will take at least 2 to 3 class periods to complete. Students just follow simple instructions to complete the map. The mapping activities 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 the important locations within North America. If needed test answer sheets are included for most the mapping activities. A research project on North America is also included that will take students several days to complete.
