Dear Educators,

It can feel a bit like groundhog day trying to find a new engaging lesson every day. As an educator, I was always so grateful for fun ideas to try in my classroom, and our whole team at Maps101 works hard every day to provide that to educators all over the country.

Below are some ideas for resources that might spice up your curriculum and give you a bit of a breather! A well-earned one no doubt.
