This product has four map activities. Two worksheets will teach your students about the countries in the UK and one map test will evaluate what your class has learned. Teach your class about where the United Kingdom is located because this country is often in the news. A map test on identifying all the countries in Europe is also provided in this package of materials. Give this test every quarter and observe how your students improve their map skills throughout the year. This package also contains worksheets on the EU and NATO countries so your class can obtain enough background information to make the news much more meaningful. All my products are done to encourage your students to become more interested in what is happening in the world. If your students know where countries are, they will become more interested in bringing in current events about each country. Remember the more background knowledge a student has the better their testing scores will be. Incorporate current events with map activities into your curriculum and turn out more informed citizens.
