Homeschool Art Lesson on Drawing the World Map

This can be an art lesson for your children if you homeschool them, or it can simply be a fun activity if they are not homeschooled.

First of all, don't ask your child to look at the map and draw it. This is a sure fire way to frustrate the child when they can't draw it like the one they see in the book or on the internet. Instead, allow the child to look at the world map and memorize it. You may want to do this a couple of days before starting the actual activity of drawing the World Map. Simply let the child study it to the point they have memorized it.

Next, you will want the child to memorize all of the continents. Once they have memorized all of the continents and the shapes of them, you will be ready to start the drawing activity. It is important that they memorize the continents and the shapes of the continents in their head.

Now that you are ready to begin the drawing, provide the child with printer paper, or construction paper. Oh, before you begin, ask the child if they feel like they are ready for the drawing. If they don't feel ready, you will need to allow them more time to study.

Once you have given them the paper, provide them with a pencil. Ask them to draw the World Map with a pencil first. Then once they have completed the World Map, they can go back and outline it in marker and maybe use colored pencils or crayons to color the map.

Keep in mind that it will more than likely take the child some time to draw the World Map. It may even take a couple of days. If you see that the child is getting frustrated, stop the child from drawing and pick it back up a little later. Maybe wait a couple of hours, or wait until the next day to begin again.

This activity will take some time, but once the child can draw the World Map, they will forever memorize it and know where the different continents are.
