In three weeks, you will have all the maps done as per the portion prescribed.

3. Practice doing the map work with your own hands

When you only look at the map given in the text book, you remember it for a short period of time.

But any mapwork done by your own hands, you never forget.

I would suggest that first know the location of every state and physical features of India like where lies the Himalayas, Plateaus, Deserts, coastal plains etc.

Though these are not in the syllabus, but will help you a lot.

You may use dough (गूंथा हुआ आटा) for making the physical features of India. Watch this interesting activity.

The best way to remember map is to do it in an interesting manner.

For example suppose you want to know which soil is found at which place.

Best is take an outline map of India. Apply glue or fevicol and sprinkle soil over it.

Now colour the soil black for black soil, red for red soil and paste sand for arid soil by looking at the soil map from the text book.

Similarly, from agriculture chapter, you can easily paste different crops in the map.

For example, you may paste cotton in the black soil region.

Tea dust can be sprinkled in Assam and Darjeeling.

Wheat in Punjab -Haryana belt.

And Paddy (Rice)  in W.B., Assam, Chhattisgarh and on eastern coastal plains.
