Blank maps with outlines of countries, continents and states

Do you want to teach a geography class using free and printable blank maps? Because we have 7 empty maps with outlines of states, countries and continents to help you get started. How can you use them?

  • First, beginner and early age classes can use these blank, printable maps as coloring sheets. For each country, state and continent, this can help them get familiar with the world.
