Using the Giant Traveling Map (1 session)

Workshops to become certified to borrow the Arizona Giant Traveling Map

What to expect:

  • Experience on-the-map activities that you can do with your school or classroom.
  • Learn how you can check out the map at low or no cost to you or your school.
  • Enjoy a fast-paced training session where you become “certified” to check out the map.
  • Learn what resources are available from the Alliance that will make your teaching of geography much easier.

The Arizona Geographic Alliance has wonderful maps and over 330 K-12 lesson plans on its website. We now own 2 floor maps of Arizona, designed for indoor use. Approximately 17 feet by 20 feet, the map comes with activities and accessories such as plastic chains, traffic cones, and other manipulatives that can be used on the map.

Once again, you need to be “certified” to borrow the map, so join us for this training.

NOTE: Please bring a pair of socks. Socks are required to walk on the map. NO bare feet, NO shoes.

Post expires at 4:44pm on Tuesday May 30th, 2017
