Our Seven Continents lesson plan introduces students to the continents. During this lesson, students are asked to map a paper map of the globe by shading each continent a different color, labeling them, cutting apart each of the 7 continents, and using a world map and glue each continent in its proper place on construction paper. Students are also asked to match given information to the correct continent, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify and list facts about the seven continents and locate each continent on a world map.
