Our large blank desktop size activity map for NORTH AMERICA has so many classroom uses.   Information and supportive hand-to-paper skills, all in one map- and hands-on activity helps students remember geographic facts while having fun making a map.

On our map, the US states are outlined and students can label them.

Do you study the regions of the US? — if so, they can be easily outlined as well.

Those teachers presenting neighbors of the USA can have a full view of Canada and Mexico/Central America as well.

Students can label the provinces of Canada and the countries to the south.  Even the Caribbean islands are clearly presented and can be easily labeled.

How about geographic features?  

When your students work with this map, they learn also learn about the bodies of water and mountain ranges that make up North America.

In addition to political features, such as countries and regions, they also locate and draw in the major mountain ranges of the continent.

They label and learn where the oceans and smaller bodies of water are located.  Students locate rivers, and draw them on their maps.
