This lesson is similar to the Africa sand map, but uses a colored paper plate instead of paper:
I also made a series of printed labels which students place on the plate prior to applying glue and sand. Using the colored plate gives a clear visual impression of how the continent is surrounded by ocean - a concept we have been discussing as we learn about Antarctica and its place on the Earth.
