Product Description
This is an activity I do every year with my students to help learn the 7 continents, 5 oceans, and features in the United States.

There are 2 versions included in this packet.

For VA teachers, it covers SOL 2.5, where students must name 7 continents, 5 oceans, Rocky Mountains, Appalachian Mountains, Rio Grande, James River, Mississippi River, Great Lakes, and the Native American Regions (3: Plains, Southwest, Eastern Woodlands), Huang He (China), and Nile River (Egypt).

Both versions include a map of the US and of the world, labels, as well as labels to add to the placemat/poster that students must fill in with the country they live in, the town/city/county they live in, the state/commonwealth/province, and blank labels to use as well as blank arrows that you can program.

There is an "answer key" included for both maps. I have had students create this with a 9x12 piece of construction paper which I then laminate. The idea is for students to use it as a placemat or poster to help them learn their places!

Please see my blog for more details or feel free to contact me with any questions! :)

***This is also included in my "Virginia Map Skills" Bundle - check it out for more Virginia skills on 2.5, 2.6***
