    Target Audience: K-12 Teachers What better way to teach young people the power of maps and the limitless depth of geography than a half court-sized map of a continent or state map on which they can explore, travel around, compete, collaborate and have lots of fun? Giant Traveling Maps are an enormously entertaining and educationally powerful tool for introducing geography and map reading skills to students, grades K-12. This evening session is designed to introduce K-12 teachers to the MISD’s Giant Traveling Maps, orient them to the lessons and activities, and schedule their school for 1 week of use with the map of their choice. 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.
