Interactive Bulletin Boards

Where in the World?

Obtain a transparency of a map of the country or region that your class is studying. Using an overhead projector, trace the outline of the projected image onto a piece of felt that matches the dimensions of a bulletin board you will be using. Also mark state or province boundaries on this large map. Trace the outlines of each individual country or region separately onto different colors of felt. Write the names of the regions on the small pieces. Put all of the region pieces into a pocket attached to the bulletin board. Have your students place the pieces onto the map as a center or small group activity. The pieces will stay on the board as felt sticks to itself. However, you may substitute thick paper and pins or tacks to construct the bulletin board.
