Why Do Map Work in Geography?
Map work is a favorite geography activity of mine. Each week the children are handed a map to fill in with various labels. These labels have ranged from the continents and oceans to countries and cities.
When we’re studying history, I love having them fill out maps related to the historical time period we’re studying. My kids have labeled maps which ranged from the spread of the plague, Hannibal’s march over the Alps, to the Allies versus the Axis countries during World War 2.
It’s been a wonderful method to tie history and geography together. In addition each child can use the same map. I simply require more of my older children than my younger children.
The kids learn where various geographic features are and how to read maps!
Map work is super easy to do, especially if you’re using a program like WonderMaps by Bright Ideas Press. As a matter of fact, we’re giving away 1 digital bundle of WonderMaps AND North Star Geography!
