Drawing is a great way to learn the geography of Europe! My son is in Classical Conversation’s Challange A and I’m drawing the world with him as part of his Cartography class. To make it easier, I’m creating simpler maps for him to draw from and step-by-step instructions to help him see what basic shapes to draw first.
I use a combination of basic shapes (sometimes called blob mapping) and a loose grid system, so students can scale their maps up and down while maintaining the proportions of the map.
*This file is in color, but my printer won’t print in color right now- so you only see black and white in the photos!
You may also enjoy coloring these maps to gain familiarity with the geography of the region.
Check out the other resources I have for using Cartography to learn Geography.
