My plan was to make these collages (I figured it goes with urban and rural studies, which they will be doing soon enough)
I started by cutting out pages from an old atlas (Notice I did my example on the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.)
I find when I look at these, I imagine that the birds traveled to wherever their map says. This took a full 1 hour period to complete, but was nice because students didn't need to bring more than glue and scissors. A nice, successful, EASY Friday afternoon!
