A Map of the World with Countries

Are you venturing on an adventure into World Geography with your students? Well, they will need to become familiar with the world’s continents and countries!

This labeled, black-and-white map of the world enables your students to become more familiar with the seven continents and approximately 195 countries that comprise our great planet.

Multiple Uses for This Map of the World’s Countries

This map of the world with labeled countries makes a great asset to your Social Studies lessons and can be used in a multitude of ways in your classroom. Here are some suggestions:

Explore the location of the world’s countries as a whole-class activity

This versatile map of the world’s countries can be projected onto your interactive whiteboard for a paperless lesson or class review session. Have students take turns coming to the board to point out specific countries of interest. As an added challenge, why not ask your students to name the continent on which the chosen country is located?

Reinforce mapping skills through color-coding

Provide students with their own printed copy of the world map. Have the students color-code the countries based on specific criteria, then create a legend to explain the meaning of the colors. For example, why not get your students to color-code the map according to:

  • Population
  • Language spoken
  • Climate
  • Average life expectancy
  • Education levels
  • Student ancestry
  • And much more!
