 US Physical Features Map
Learn US Geography with a fun, hands-on paste up map

  Physical features of the U.S.     You can give your children the geographical framework that will help them understand so much else that they study, with free interactive maps. Geography is spatial, why not study it spatially?
     The heart of geography, and even the source of its name is the map—a picture of the world which organizes our understanding of places. Manipulating a map, assembling it, is the best way to learn where features are, and how near or far they are to each other. The map is a framework that brings other knowledge together and makes the world understandable.
     The "what?" and the "where?" are a necessary beginning to understanding the "who?" and the "why?"
     Here are the major rivers, mountains, deserts and rainforests that have influenced and continue to influence where and how human beings live in the United States. Students need not just names, but a permanent picture of the world in their minds. Geography is real places, and a map represents those places much better than words can. Knowing where the Mojave Desert, the Arkansas River, the Ozark Mountains are helps to orient a student in the country in a meaningful way.
