Put a hands on twist on a typical and sometimes "boring" social studies topic. Resource can be used in multiple ways. Students can work independently, in partnerships, or small groups.
Foldable (picture example included):
Students create a foldable insert for their social studies interactive notebook using colorful construction paper, and given information which includes map title, picture, and definition.
Great for partners and center work. Students cut and sort cards to match the correct map type to it's definition and picture. A sort mat has also been included for students to glue the cards in the correct order. Included extension question which requires students to compare two types of maps. Makes for a great, hands-on grade!
Types of maps included are physical, political, contour, elevation, land use/resource, and climate maps.
