Asia map worksheet

We have included 50 countries in the Asia map, the United Nations only includes 48. The two extra countries we have included are:

  1. Taiwan. Taiwan is a self-governing democratic state that is not recognized as a sovereign state by the United Nations or some countries due to diplomatic reasons. It is instead recognized as a part of China by the United Nations.
  2. Palestine. Palestine is recognized by the United Nations as a non-member observer state, but it is not a full-member state. The status of Palestine is a contentious issue and is the subject of ongoing political debate and negotiations.

There are 2 different maps of the continent of Asia. One with the countries on the side to make it a little easier, and one with no country names.

The students can either color in the different countries or add the names to the correct country.

I have also added the word search answers, as some of the words are a little tricky to find!
