Labeling the World Map

Students develop map skills by recognizing physical shapes, and labeling the seven continents and five oceans on a world map.

Students will use a photo editor / paint program to label a world map. Students add text illustrating the locations of the seven continents of North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and Antarctica. Students add text illustrating the locations of the five oceans for the Pacific, Atlantic, Southern, Indian and Arctic. Students can also draw a line along the Equator and the Prime Meridian. Students can also insert an image of themselves showing their current location or birth location on the map.
