Using a blank map is an excellent way to teach or learn about geography. Not only will you or your students be able to label countries, cities, and other geographical features. But you can also teach or learn about the physical features of the relevant region. Finally, you can use a blank map to create or study for a test, or simply to improve your general understanding of geography.
Here are some tips on how to use a blank map for teaching and learning:
- Start by familiarizing yourself with the overall shape of the country, it’s states or provinces, capital and major cities. A labeled map, physical map and/or political map can be a helpful reference. You might also want to use an outline map first to get familiar with the outer boundaries of a country or continent.
- Next, focus on learning the location of the provinces and territories as well as major cities and inner-country borders. Again, refer to your reference maps if necessary.
- Once you have a good understanding of the general layout, you can take your blank map and begin filling in the names of the provinces and territories. Maybe you could mark the national capital as well.
- Then, you continue with the names of major cities, rivers and even mountain ranges. If you’re unsure about a certain location, you might again want to check your reference maps. You could even try to draw the province borders into a blank outline map.
