Grade seven Italian students have recently completed a unit on the geography of Italy. Using wall maps, handouts and a map of Italy in their text books as references, students have labeled in Italian their own maps. They completed a regional map naming the twenty regions of Italy and their capital cities.

Next, students labeled a map of Italy with the names of bordering countries and seas, mountains, volcanoes, rivers, lakes, islands, cities and two republics.

As a culminating activity, students labeled a world map in order to better appreciate the fact that, despite the small size of the country, Italy has made a big impact on world culture.
