Geography Maps and First Giveaway

I have had this blog for years and I think it's about time I host my first giveaway. I'm excited to see how it turns out. Keep reading for details to enter.

I have worked really hard to make these map sets for my classroom and have just recently added them to my shop. For each continent the set includes a download for:
- A control map labelled with countries - A control map labelled with cities - A coloured unlabelled map that can be used with labels or pin maps - A black and white countries unlabelled map for children to fill in - A black and white cities unlabelled map for children to fill in - A black and white flag unlabelled map for children to fill in - Labels for countries and capital cities in large and small

Ideally the maps should be used with the puzzle maps and the child will use the control maps to label the puzzle maps. However I have also added a blank coloured map for the children to work with instead if puzzle maps are not available. The sets included labels for the countries [written in bold] and cities [written in lower case], these labels can be printed in large to be used with puzzle maps or small to be used with printed maps. The sets also include worksheets for the children to colour and label themselves. There is a worksheet for countries, cities and flags.


Here is a picture of the maps being used with small labels.




Here is a picture of the maps being used with pin maps that are also available at my shop.


The maps are colour coded according to the standard Montessori puzzle map colours, so when worked with together they match nicely. Each map is also outlined with the continent colours. The maps are available as a download for each set per continent, or a complete set of all maps for six continents. I have worked really hard to make these and the children love them!

Now for the giveaway....

I am giving away one complete PDF set of all the maps for all the continents.
That means you get a chance to win all the maps and worksheets mentioned above and the labels.
