    continents

    I make masters of each of the continents. I try to keep them so the sizes match in comparison. Whenever possible I put multiple drawings of the same continent on one sheet. Each continent is run off on a different color ditto paper. Each student gets a copy of each continent. I make a master of all the names of the continents, oceans, equator, compass rose, north pole, south pole, and map title. I put boxes around these names so students can cut them out. Each student gets a large piece of blue roll paper. The students look at a map and place the continents and words in the appropriate places.I have found they get a lot of experience saying the names of the continents and oceans while doing this activity.
