Classrom maps - work directly on the map

     Maps are a fundamental teaching tool. “Where” makes the lesson real and puts it into context. Too often maps for classroom use are too expensive for direct contact with students, let alone being personalized by learning activities. Free maps that can be used by students bring map activities to life. Large wall maps created by the class and individual maps created by each student increase learning, enliven the classroom and show parents the student’s progress.

     These free maps are great for use in the classroom because they can be easily printed in a range of sizes for different purposes, and because the students can write, draw, and mark on their own copies of them.

•   Print out a large map for the front of the classroom, for the teacher to explain the material on, and a single page map for each student to show what they have learned.

•   Print out a multi-page map of the US or the world, and have groups of students assemble it together, like a puzzle. This is great for learning where places are in relation to each other.

•   Use Printable maps of the all of the United States to teach the geography and history of each state.  State maps are made to print on color or black and white printers.  Maps print full size automatically with any computer printer.

•   Outline maps can be made to show political, environmental, physical, economic and historical information. Make multiple copies of a map, and students can show different features of the place on the map— historical events physical/geologic features land use—urban, farm, suburban, etc. political—states, borders, capitals family histories wildlife habitat types of environment—grassland, forest, agriculture changes in one place over time and many more.

     By coloring and writing on the map, students make it “their own”. Map work moves from rote to fun. The larger map format not only allows more detail because of its larger scale, it also makes it easy for several student to work together on one map. Students can each have a small map, while the teacher explains material on a larger map at the front. Maps to complement a variety of lessons. Have your students learn WHERE it happened.
