The Giant Traveling Map

20161110_125036The National Geographic Society started a new initiative this year featuring giant maps of each state that were created with the expertise of National Geographic’s Cartographic Division and research on elementary spatial thinking. The Georgia Geographic Alliance received a 16-by-20-foot map of the state of Georgia, and by request, the map will be shipped around to different schools across the state for educational use. If you are interested in having the map at your school, fill out the form below, and we will be in contact with you!

Check out the video below!

                                   Request the Traveling Map Here!

After you have returned the traveling map, please fill out the mandatory report form here.

                                             All Traveling Map Resources can be Found Here.

This includes resources from National Geographic, the Georgia Geographic Alliance, and other teachers who created their own activities.


                                        Traveling Map Availability

There are two maps available for circulation at all times! The map below shows who has already reserved the map for specific dates. If you see two schools signed up for a week (click “see more” if it’s there!), then, unfortunately, the map is not available then. Look for another week where no one or only one school is signed up! Then, just fill out the request form and we’ll be in touch as the date gets closer.
