Have time for “Ten-Minute Mapping”?

Colored-Pencils blog

Want your students to absorb geographic knowledge, but don’t seem to have enough time?  How does TEN MINUTES daily sound to you?

Here at Map of the Month / Maps for the Classroom, we are advocates for what we have coined TEN MINUTE MAPPING.  Using our large desktop-size maps in small sections daily, students can gradually work through countries (like our own!), whole continents, even history maps, all in the course of a year.

Here is a small section of our most popular blank activity map– USA, PLACES AND GEOGRAPHIC FEATURES.

This small section of this map took just TEN MINUTES to complete!

Completing the map in small TEN MINUTE bites like this, your students will absorb information that they will remember for a lifetime.  AND they have the fun and satisfaction of completing a large colorful map.  Many teachers tell us that their students keep these maps and display them at home– that even reinforces family learning!
