Description

No-prep, 2-3 week unit on six different types of maps, and more! The map types included are: Political, Physical, Road, Climate, Resource, and Thematic. There is also a 3-page lesson on map reading skills and components, like a Map Title, Map Key, Scale, and Compass Rose. With this resource, you will be provided with lesson plans, a student workbook and accompanying interactive notebook (activity lapbook), a PowerPoint for teacher-guided instruction, and an end-of-unit assessment. The student workbook and PowerPoint are also Google 1:1 compatible. Reading and literacy skill building activities are built-in to the student workbook (You can also buy the Student Workbook as a stand-alone resource by CLICKING HERE).

This "Types of Maps" unit is an excellent supplement to my CONTINENTS, OCEANS, & MAP SKILLS UNIT; check it out! (OR... bundle them together and save $$. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO!).

This unit is easy to implement with independent learners and, therefore, can be used in hybrid classrooms, with at-home learners, or fully in-person classes. And as a bonus- your students will love learning about different types of maps with Tony the Tourist!
