What Are the Features of Maps?

Before our young learners delve too far into the wonderful world of Geography, there are certain key skills they’ll need to have under their belts. One such skill is understanding the purpose, types and features of maps and globes.

This map skills worksheet has been designed to help your students learn about some of the common features of maps. Some such features include:

  • scale
  • legends and keys
  • symbols
  • compass rose
  • latitude and longitude.

Students are required to identify each of these features on the map provided.
