4. Physical and political maps have distinctive characteristics and purposes. Places can be located on a map by using the title, key, alphanumeric grid and cardinal directions.

This one uses the in game map, but not in the game. Students should get a screenshot of the map and print it out. Then students should add a compass to their map and label the North, South, East and West directions on the compass. They can then label all of the areas on the map.
