    I have students work in cooperative groups to create a map using the following directons:

    Using their own hands as scissors, students will create each continent as follows: green-North America, yellow-South America, red-Europe, purple-Asia, pink-Africa, brown-Australia, orange-Antarctica
    Label each of the continents with a marker.
    Set each of the continents on the blue construction paper in itsí appropriate place.
    Check your map to be sure each of the continents are in the correct place.
    Paste the continents on the paper.
    Label the four oceans and draw a compass rose.

    This project works well to promote cooperative activities, reinforces the location of the continents and oceans as well as their relative size and shape.
