The interactive global map www.mappinglife.org gives a comprehensive overview of the global distribution of animal and plant species. This is how the map works: by clicking on the section of a country, the interested user is shown a list of species occurrence in the selected area. Furthermore, by entering the English or Latin name of a species in the search function, you can view the distribution of habitat of any given animal or plant. In its current version, Wiki Map has mainly received its information from existing museum data, environmental maps as well as regional or international data assets and at present includes approximately 30,000 species.

World Map Geography Activities For Kids + Free Printable After our Solar System Activities, I figured we needed to talk about things a little closer to home, or at least on our planet. So today I am sharing our World Map activities and free printable that can be used as coloring pages for the continents as well as labels for matching and reading. So when I was in school I remember being taught that there are 7 continents (North America, South America, Asia, Europe, Australia, Africa, Antarctica) and I always thought it was weird that Asia and Europe were considered continents even though they are clearly attached together. Some now believe that there are only 6 continents combining Europe and Asia, and still others believe there are only 5 continents combining North and South America. I really like the 6 continent idea so I made a 7 continent printable and a 6 continent printable to make sure she would learn both ways so she would be familiar with both terms.

Some of these are pretty nerdy, but I think they're no less fascinating and easily understandable.
