Important Note regarding color-coding: It's very important to consider the color-coding of your map work before you start purchasing/preparing your materials. Traditional Montessori Colors for maps are as follows:
This color-coding system works well in that it helps the children (and the teachers) keep all the materials for each continent organized. However, if you do not follow the traditional Montessori map colors, then consider making your own color-coding system. The number of photo cards, flags, and labels for each continent really add up ... and it's extremely time-consuming to have to resort hundreds of cards!
If you're using files from the Geography section of our store, please note that all our materials come with the traditional color-coding and without any color-coding.
With Color-Coding (back of flags have color strip)
Let's get started!
1. Print out your pin map flags. If you're using the pin map flag files from our store, please note that there are two sets of flags in each file. One set has the names on the backs of the flags (the control set), and 1 set is without the names on the backs of the flags - you can choose the set you feel is appropriate for your children.
2. Cut out each flag (just follow the printed lines).
