National Geographic Giant Traveling Maps are enormously entertaining and educationally powerful tools for introducing geography and map reading skills to students, grades K-8. What better way to teach young people the power of maps and the limitless depth of geography than a basketball court-sized map of a continent on which they can explore, travel from country to country, hop around, compete, collaborate and have lots of fun?

National Geographic’s Giant Traveling Maps, produced by National Geographic Live, tour the country’s schools, bringing hands- and feet-on geography education to 200,000 students each year. Designed to promote geographic literacy by igniting interest in geography, the maps and accompanying activities incorporate physical movement and games to teach students place names, physical geography, and cultural geography as well as map reading skills.

Africa’s tremendous Sahara, deep forest, and endless savanna await your students on this visually stunning map, based on the September 2005 National Geographic Magazine map insert. The brightly colored map is 26’ x 35’, and clearly illustrates oceans, seas, rivers, mountains, countries and capitals.

Explore the continent with your students using these educationally powerful and fun activities like Let’s Explore AfricaSimon Says…Explore!How Big Is Africa?Cardinal DirectionsA Legend-ary ExplorationAfrican Population and  Additional Activities. {National Geographic}
