Giant Traveling Maps
Want to have some enormous fun? Have one of the National Geographic Society giant traveling maps visit your school. The VGA will be hosting 1 giant traveling maps in the 2014-2015 school year.
These huge floor maps of the continents are made to walk on. Each map is approximately 26' by 35', and comes with a trunk full of ideas and materials for many different lessons. The activities incorporate physical movement and games to teach geography and map reading skills for grades K-8.
Each map costs $75/day, andthe borrowing school must transport the map and trunk to the next Vermont school on the list. The maps are rolled into a 10' long transportation tube that can transported by a large van or a pick-up truck.
Let us know if you want to reserve a giant traveling map for next school year. Sign up early and get the dates of your choice! Contact VGA Office Manager Keighan Chapman for more information.
