Are you exploring maps in homeschool this year and need some ideas to spice up your lessons? It is important for kids to learn how to make maps and to understand the legend that goes along with maps. Add in this fun salt-dough world map activity to add alongside one of your lessons.
Learning how to make a world map doesn’t have to be dull for kids. You don’t always have to use just cut-outs. I like to use map cutouts because kids can see the actual picture of the world regions, however mixing up your lessons with fun, hands-on activities will help your children retain more information about what the world looks like.
Please don’t forget to teach about geography and help kids make maps in homeschool. I live overseas now and one thing I gathered is that people from all over the world know a lot more about America than we know about them.
This is why I am making it a point for my kids to learn more about countries and cultures around the world. This world map recipe will be an adorable place to start with your elementary-aged children.
The world map recipe is super simple. It only needs the following ingredients:
- 1 cup of salt
- 2 cups of flour
- 1 cup of warm water
- food coloring
