Geography Comes to Life
Wednesday, December 14, 2011
Introduced in the fall of 2007 and based on the National Geographic Atlas, 8th edition, the Giant Traveling Map of Asia is our largest map. The map’s unique projection, in which the North Pole appears on the map, invites discussion about how the direction of North appears to change depending on your location on the map. The map also features measurements of latitude and longitude, and is an effective tool for teaching how to find a location using coordinates. Students can explore the continent using this educationally powerful and fun map.
