Maps at Home – Education: Maine

 

Use these activities and maps to explore the changes that occurred in Maine from the time it was a district of Massachusetts valued largely for its lumber through its transformation into ‘Vacationland’.

In creating this Learn at Home theme, we have tried to make it as customizable as possible so it can be used with a variety of ages and skill sets. The “Independent Use” worksheets can be done apart from the Map Set, and have been created as PDF Forms so they do not need to be printed for your students to complete. The “Map Set” worksheets are also created as PDF Forms and use the maps listed below (or downloadable as a PDF).
