Activities For Grades 6 - 9
What In The World. . .?
To practice basic map skills and to review the geography of Africa.
Worksheet: What in the World. . .!
Have students work individually or in pairs to spot the ten errors on the map of the world. Correct the errors as a class using available wall maps, globes or atlases. Repeat this activity on successive days until students can make corrections without using maps or globes.
Using available maps, have students work in pairs to add the following labels to their corrected maps: equator, prime meridian, United States, Ghana, Uganda, Rwanda, South Africa, Botswana, Senegal, and your state.
Have students make their own "mis-maps" by altering and then copying the "What in the World" worksheet.
