Add Text (Labels) onto the Map… Click on: the „A’ symbol on the left side menu Highlight the bottom box so you don‟t delete the map as you create labels.

Move labels around by highlighting this tool Surround the label with a box and simply drag it to the correct Location…you only have one chance! Hint - Once you have completed a label, you cannot go back and change the spelling or move it slightly. You pretty much have to erase it with the eraser tool and write it in again. Finish the map: Add a north arrow. Search in Google Images under „north arrow‟. Copy and paste a nice one onto your map. Erase the title and create a new one using the title of the assignment as a guide. Add your name to the bottom right corner. Printing your Map Always check „Print Preview’ before printing so you don‟t waste paper. Colouring your Map Use pencil crayons to LIGHTLY outline and shade the 15 countries only…leave the oceans white. What in the World ISN’T Geography?
