World Map


Lil Muallimah got to color her own world map. I got the 6 page print out from Owl and Mouse website. and Lil Muallim 1 and 2 put it together as a puzzle with Lil Muallim #1 folding the sides to match it up.

Got to love team work. It is an important lesson to teach kids.......  helping out siblings. A true blessing when they do....Alhumdolillah!

She used her World Map to match the shapes of continents and colors. She was quite excited and did Australia and Africa in one sitting.

Just so she wouldn't stress out if a bit of color came out of the lines, I oulined the continent with a think line at the borders as you can see in the picture below.

She did South America and North America next with others to follow.

Her neatness shows how much she prizes this :)  

Asia is waiting to be completed for the past week :) I think today will be the day.

Yup...we did finish it today. First when I laid it out and asked her if she wanted to do it she said no. A little while later, I sat down and asked her if she would like me to make the outlines. That's all I needed to say. We were all done in less than 5 minutes :) 

We also fixed some mistakes in the coloring by pasting a paper over certain parts (border of Europe and Asia) and reduced the size of Greenland. Different map projections have varying size for some areas. But that I'll talk about in another post.

Next post will be about what we did with this map.... so stay tuned :)

Maashaa Allaah very nice. I remember we doing the topic last year and Maimoonah enjoyed it too. We have the same foam puzzle and she used it for stencilling and making up her own world map!! Children really enjoy studying geography this way! Have fun!
