This activity provides an easy day to day intro lesson. It covers basic terminology, previews, and reviews many key principals of geography. The most exciting aspect of this activity is it completely changes the process of memorizing maps. The only materials you will need is a way to present the photos and a blank 11X17 map for each student. (If you fold it in half they slide in to a sheet protector and will last all year!) This is also easy to adjust for grade grade level. I even use this for my AP Human Geography class.
