This mapping activity allows students to map the physical, political, and historic sites of Hawaiian Islands. This activity is in Word so you can easily modify the directions or use specific parts of the activity you want.
I suggest using an 11x17 piece of paper for the map, but an 8x11 piece of paper will work. Please make at least four copies of the Hawaiian Islands map.
Depending on the age level of your students, this mapping activity will take 15 minutes to 30 minutes 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. I suggest projecting Google Maps and having the teacher guide students through the map or even have students use computers and find the locations since most atlases will only include a few Hawaiian sites. Please look over the Hawaiian locations on my list first and decide if you want to add or remove locations for your students.
My students enjoy this activity and it helps them visualize and learn about the geography of Hawaii. Find a free blank map of Hawaii and print out at least three copies:
1st Map of the Hawaiian Islands (Physical Features)
2nd Map of the Hawaiian Island (Political/Historical Features)
3rdMap (Blank Map of the Hawaiian Islands for students to study)
The following websites offer great free maps of the Hawaiian Islands
(Blank Hawaiian Islands map, with a star for the capital)
(Blank Hawaiian Island maps, no star for the capital)
(Blank Hawaiian Island map, also includes each Hawaiian Island by itself if wanted)
