Pushpin Map of Europe

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Gohan has started studying Europe and I made the pushpin map for him to use. These work really well for him as he can focus on geography, free of the stress of having to spell and write the labels himself. If you would like to use these yourself, you need to simply mount an outline map on to foam board or cardboard. I have an outline map from the Trail Guide to World Geography curriculum, but good free maps can be found at infoplease, worldatlas, National Geographic’s Xpeditions Atlas (be sure that detail level is basic and country borders are on) and Eduplace. I use Mod Podge to give a protective coating to the map. Then print out the labels and wrap them around a pin. This time, I used glue tape to glue the two sides of the label together. I’ve also used regular glue and suspect that tape would work.
