Kids love drawing mountain ranges on to their maps. By doing this, they can see how mountains are a part of a state, a country or a continent!
We always include the symbol for a mountain on each MAP KEY on our maps. That way students see the little iconic image and can use it on a map to represent one mountain, maybe the highest in their state, or to depict a mountain range.
Students can explore Earth’s mountain regions in great detail, with 10 expanded map workshops and over 130 activities.
Each MOUNTAIN file adds content and cross curricular links our hands-on activity maps:
The Alps— works with our EUROPE map
Atlas Mountains— great for work with our AFRICA map
Great Dividing Range — adds information for use with our AUSTRALIA map
For example, our ALPS file has interesting features about the St Bernard Pass, and its history, maps to complete, animals of the region, historical information, writing exercises, vocabulary, reading list and more. These CartoCraze! Expanded Map Workshops, can be used with a Smartboard or projector in your classroom. These files not only add to the large hands on activity maps we know you love in your class, but they add to other topics you are teaching.
