We weren't allowed to get away with this when I was in school. That and there was $5 from my father for the first one of us that could take one of these blank maps and sit down at the table after dinner and put the right name in the right spot. We also had to get the capitals in roughly the right spot too. He believed in making us work for his money. :)
It's funny how most all the mappers can get Texas and California. The rest are just wonderful starting with Middle Earth and No Fucking Clue. I'll have to try this with a 5th grader I know and see how she's doing at making things up these days.
There are a bunch of these at Twisted Sifter. I ripped them off via Gunsmoke and Knitting.
