Determine if the statement refers to MAPS, GLOBES, or BOTH.

Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

This activity should be done after maps and globes have been introduced. I recommend modifying any of the labels to fit the needs of your instruction. You can also record the labels if you have students who would benefit from that. You could also have a sample of a map and a globe on hand to help stimulate thinking.
