    Move on from a basic understanding of map reading to a more complex one with our engaging and highly interactive 80 screen-page digital lesson plan for students in grades six to eight.

    Students will further develop their ability to read and understand maps by looking at weather and population maps. Then, students will engage in mapping their country in detail, including states, provinces, capitals, cultural and geographical features. Finally, students will move on to mapping their continent and then the world. Using any brand of Interactive Whiteboard, you will be able to create an opportunity for students to get more involved in the lesson. Each ready-made screen contains reading passages, before and after you read interactive activities, a Google Earth component, interactive map activities, test prep, memory match game, crossword, word search, printables, supporting video, and even English and Spanish Text to Speech. Test your student's comprehension of the lesson with a Comprehension Quiz. All of our content is aligned to your State Standards and are written to Bloom's Taxonomy.
