Physical Map of Africa

How to complete a map correctly:

-Print legibly in blue or black ink ONLY

-Use map pencils ONLY (no markers, crayons, or highlighters)

-No abbreviations (exceptions: Mountains = Mts., Island = Is., River = R.)

-Include your name

-Give your map a title

-Include a compass rose

**Label each feature on your map by writing the name, THEN color the feature according to directions (do not simply color the name)

-States / countries should be in ALL CAPS, everything else is upper and lower case

*After you have labeled a feature, cross it off this list

-Be sure to follow all directions carefully
