Learn About N. America Through Maps & More

Continent Explorer II teaches students about North America through challenging "show me," "find it" and "name it" learning activities. Fact sheets and physical, political and industrial maps are provided for each country, state, province and territory, including Canada, the U.S., Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean islands. Students can even paint and print their own maps with color-coded legends. Continent Explorer II lets teachers add learning topics, create regions, display motivational clues, adjust difficulty and record student responses.

Also included are a thematic unit plan on Native American cultures and dozens of blackline masters. Pierian Spring Software, Portland, OR, (800) 472-8578. M
