AP Human Geography Summer Assignments

Welcome Geographers! I’m glad you have decided to take AP Human Geography. I’m looking
forward to a great year with you. We have a lot to cover so we need to hit the ground
running. This packet contains the summer assignments you will need to complete before
school begins. Please have them done and ready to hand in on the first day of class. Good
luck and let me know if you have any questions. Email me at:

Ø Map Packet Assignment
During the first week of class you will be tested on your knowledge of world political and
physical geography. You will need to know the location of all the countries of the world and the
major physical features. This packet includes regional maps that will help you memorize the
countries and features.

For each map in the packet:

• Label and memorize the countries and physical features from the provided lists
o The black dots on the maps are for major cities. While you will not be tested on
the cities, it is a good idea to be familiar with their names and where they are
located- you are required to label them.
o Political borders change! You may need to draw in some new boundaries.
o You do not need to color your maps, just label. Although some students have
found that by coloring them, they are spending quality time with the maps and it
helps them memorize them and makes them easier to study from.

To help you memorize the countries and major physical features I recommend using the
website You could have your family or friends quiz you using blank
maps, too. I have organized a tournament for students to practice and compete against each
other on the website . For information on how to join the
tournament, join our APHG Summer Google Classroom. Go to
and enter code: phfluoe. (Make sure that your are logged into google with your school email.)
I will post some other helpful resources to help you with your maps as well.
