This great lesson plan collection includes 20 mapping activities covering the geography and history of the United States. Six test answer sheets are also included for the teacher to use. My students enjoy these mapping activities and have become very engaged in them. My students ask more questions in class and are better able to connect geographic and historical information. Each mapping lesson plan can take up to one class period to complete. The mapping activities can be easily modified by the teacher to work with any atlas or age level. Save yourself time and money and order this whole collection together. By ordering this lesson plan collection, you will have activities for between 17 and 30 school days depending on the grade you teach. Feel free to check the reviews of my various lesson plans on Teachers Pay Teachers. Links for free maps to be downloaded are included with each lesson plan. Here is the list of mapping activities that are included in this collection.
Because of copy right laws you will have to download the maps from various websites, links to maps or suggested maps to use are included in each lesson plan!
