Although Maps101 includes a massive number of maps, our content isn’t only maps, as you no doubt know from using us in your classroom. In fact, we support all social studies, science, English language arts, fine arts and music, and even physical education. Why? The answer is simple: geography is everywhere, and it is everything!!!!
This may sound odd to those of you who are not geography teachers, but we assure you that geography encompasses whatever you are teaching. Why? Because all knowledge comes from people, and people live all over the world. All cultures, including the achievements of all people from the earliest to today, the histories of civilizations, and all things related to people, are greatly affected by the particular places in the world where those things happen—in other words, by geography.
This week, let’s take a look at how Maps101 benefits science and ELA classrooms.
