The Robinson projection of the world map is the version that Rand McNally used in their books. This provides a more accurate representation of country size without the confusing nature of an interrupted map, such as the Goode's Projection.
I created this map extra large so that it could be scanned and reduced more accurately, especially when representing the tiny countries. Since this is a hand drawn map, there may be slight errors in the country boundaries, but I have tried to be as accurate as possible.
The ZIP file contains several documents:
-Four versions in Tabloid size (11x17")
-Four versions in Letter size (8.5x11")
-Three versions in Legal size (8.5x14")
-three jpeg files for use in presentation or smartboards
The legend and titles have been left blank to give the map more versatility. Remember, students will become more familiar with the map when it's used in various applications. For example, you might ask them to colour French speaking nations, or colour countries based on population density. You might ask students to connect countries that trade with each other, or identify GDP and colour sort. You might ask students to draw out the path of the explorers as they travelled across the oceans. The uses are endless and with lots of size choices.
I hope you enjoy these maps. Please feel free to contact me if you see any errors. I'll do my best to fix them. Also, if you enjoy the style of maps I am creating and would like to request a specific region, please let me know. I look forward to hearing how you used these maps.
