World Map Directions
  • Label the maps based on the map list
  • You will have three separate maps (today only
    work on Map 1)
  • I suggest color coordinating-ex. for all oceans
    use one color, for all mountain ranges use
    another, etc. (color coordinating is optional)
  • Draw in the symbol for rivers and mountain
  • If places are too small to write you can label
    the area by its number on the list
  • Map items will be part of a global themes quiz
    that will be taken next week.
