This purchase includes a PDF and an editable version (PPT) of a Political and Physical map of South America. On the front is the Political map, which has students label each country and use the legend to color code which countries were colonized by who. On the back is the physical map, which has students label and color 9 different physical features in South America. On both maps, students are asked to draw a compass rose.
The editable versions of this map are perfect if you want to add, delete, or change anything. Perhaps you want to include a certain city or landform. The editable version let's you do that! I've also included pictures of what the maps should look like when completed -- use this as an answer key.
Most of my 6th graders were able to do this in one class period (approx. 50 minutes). However, a few needed a little extra time to finish at home.
