Maps For Elementary Students
Let’s start with an example for our youngest learners. This map shows a typical community to help them begin to understand maps and apply mapping skills. This map is ideal for showing students the connection of jobs and workers in a community. Help students discover what types of people live and work in these buildings.
Continuing the theme of younger learners, did you know that we have our exclusive Geography News Network Article for junior audiences, too? Well, we do! This map shows what Walt Disney World looked like at its opening in 1971 and compares it to today's layout. Students will have no difficulty recognizing how much the beloved theme park has grown since its beginnings.
Students will no doubt be surprised when they see this early, antique map of Houston! What would Sam Houston think today, if he saw the city? Our antique map collection includes numerous historical views for students to compare and contrast with today's modern cityscapes.
Your subscription to Maps101 includes a broad range of maps ideal for the science classroom. This up-to-date map will help students see the countries with the greatest amount of energy consumption. Have them speculate on why these countries are especially high energy users.
One of the biggest stories for the United States, after becoming independent from Great Britain, was its expansion westward to take up the continent from the Atlantic Ocean, where the early colonies were, all the way west to the Pacific Ocean. We have textbooks-worth of history maps, both for the U.S and the world. Where in time will you and your students explore?
