About Our Classroom Products and Reading Materials

When it comes to classroom learning, nothing makes education more fun and engaging than having the ability to learn with extra activities, visual aids, and hands-on experience. Wall maps, games and puzzles, atlases, globes, outline wall maps, and themed maps will teach your class and keep them engaged.

Visual Learning and its Benefits

Visual tools and interactive educational games provide an effective way to promote visual thinking. In effect, visual thinking leads to visual learning whereby any learning that is done through images is visual. Students are able to engage with visuals to see what you are talking about, then with the help of wall maps, games, puzzles, globes, atlases, and more they are able to relate hands-on in the classroom.

Did you know that visual learning helps students to better organize and analyze information? When they use maps, games, and puzzles, they are seeing the results right in front of them. This gives them the clearest picture of what they are learning.

As an educator, you can explain events that transcend time and geographic space in a concrete way using visual materials. Without visual tools, many of the concepts can seem abstract and irrelevant.

Any new knowledge you want to introduce in student lessons will be easily picked up when they learn through visual thinking. It’s not enough to just talk about a lesson. When your students see what it is you’re talking about, and are able to engage physically with the materials, they will remember it and can learn more quickly.

Visual learning helps your students to think critically. This is one of the most important and valuable skills you want them to learn in school. By linking verbal and visual information, your students will make connections, understand relationships, and recall related details. All because you are using maps, games and puzzles to aid them in their learning.

Tools for Visual Learning

Wall Maps are available in many different subjects. From the beginnings of civilization, to ancient and prehistoric worlds, to history and voyages from centuries ago to more modern times, there are wall maps to accommodate whichever time in history you are teaching about. From wars to politics, revolutions, to learning where each state is located, there are wall maps for every classroom endeavor.

Games and Puzzles start with an inflatable Earth Ball, where your students can sit and pass the ball around while having to point out where certain places are located before handing the ball off to the next student. The jigsaw puzzles are 500 piece puzzles. There are puzzles of the solar system, the USA, the world, and international puzzles; all to keep your classroom busy and inspired by learning their geography.

Atlases are sophisticated learning tools, particularly for older elementary students. Here they will learn in-depth, about places like the Middle East, and Western Civilization. Also included is a Road Atlas specifically for kids and a United States History Atlas. Children always find these atlases so interesting, because through visual learning they are able to see exactly what you are teaching them.

Globes are hands-on learning at its best. Maps.com has some of the best globes for classroom teaching. Choose the style you like best: the Atlantis Globe, the Carlyle Globe, and the Livingston Globe are three examples. There are globes on stands and globes of the ancient world, too. Take your pick.

Outline Wall Maps are available for every state. These maps will teach children about all of the counties within the states. Getting specific about your particular state will give students lessons they will never forget.

Themed Maps will really bring your history lessons to life. Everything from ancient civilizations to learning about the growth of the USA, to early voyages of exploration and modern imperialism, students will see for themselves how these events impacted the people who lived in those times, and how those events still impact them today.
