Free Wall Maps for Your Classroom

Like good manners and flannel shirts, wall maps never go out of style. If you need some new maps to put on the walls of your classroom, take a look at the free maps that National Geographic offers. Nat Geo Map Maker kits provide teachers with files for printing wall maps, table top maps, and mega maps that might only fit on the floor of your classroom. All of the maps print in sections on standard size printer paper. You and your students will have to assemble the pieces of the maps.

There are eleven Nat Geo Map Maker kits. The kits offer United States political and physical maps, world political and physical maps, maps of Asia, Africa, Europe, North and South America, Australia and Oceania, polar region maps, and maps of New England.

Applications for Education
Looking at big maps on the walls of my classrooms is one of my favorite memories of elementary school. Looking at those maps sparked my curiosity about many things. I know those maps, complete with the borders of the late Cold War era in which I grew up, played a part in me eventually becoming a social studies teacher. Perhaps assembling some of the maps from the Nat Geo Map Maker kits will help you spark a student's interest in geography.
