    One idea:

    This is called "Torn-Paper Mosaics":

    If you are working on a regions of the U. S., for example, have your students create a torn-paper mosaic. Duplicate on outline map of the U. S. for each student in your class on light-colored construction paper. Give each studnet one of the U. S. maps, glue, and half sheets of 8 1/2 x 11"
    construction paper in eight different colors. Instruct the students to tear each sheet of construction apart into small pieces, making a different pile for each color. On the chalkboard, write the names of the regions of the U. S. Assign a different construction paper color to each region. Direct the student to cover each region of the map with the corresponding colored pieces of torn paper. have the student title the map and create a key, then have them refer to these colorful maps throughout your regional study of the U. S.

    Of course, this activity could be modified for other countries of the world--Canada, Europe, etc.
