Write-on/Wipe-off US Map (11" X 17")
U.S. Write-on/Write-off Desk Mat - States Map is a powerful educational resource that allows teachers and students to use over and over. U.S. Write-on/Write-off Desk Mat - States Map is 11 inches x 17 inches. One side is in color and has the label each state activity. The other side is black and white and has various activities. The map also helps students to understand relative location, state regions, borders, physical features and more! In addition, there are several activities including fill-in-the-blanks, city grid locations, map scales, map key and compass rose. Use a dry-erase pen to wipe clean to use again and again.
A handy sized map with outlines of the states or countries that your student can write on with a dry-erase marker for geography practice. The US Map lists the states with their abbreviations on the front corner. Beyond identifying each state, you could have kids write in the capitals, identify a state by its shape, group them by regions (New England, the Midwest, etc.) or even write a famous person from each state! The front of each map is colorful, but on the back are several black/white activities. On the World Map, the countries are a little small to write complete names on, so you could number them and have students write their answers on paper. You could still identify regions by language or religion, label the continents and oceans, and add it to your history curriculum for a geography reference. I really like the table-top size of these. A hole is punched on one end to hang up out of the way when not in use. These are versatile teaching tools! ~ Sara
These inexpensive outline maps measure 8.5" x 11" and are available in paper or laminate. The outlines are in black and white, with borders of interior boundaries shown as dotted lines. Latitude and longitude lines are included, as is a scale with miles and kilometers to show distance on the map. The paper versions are made with fairly thin paper, but are perfect for coloring and labeling. The laminated versions are obviously more durable and can be written on with dry-erase markers. The maps are one-sided with the other side simply being blank. These are great tools for geography lessons.
