Giant Map of North America Visits Pinewood!

Over the past couple of weeks, you might have stopped by the gym and noticed something different. That is because at Pinewood we had a National Geographic Traveling Map on our gym floor for two weeks. Thanks to the generosity of of a grant from Meemic, we were able to rent a map for two weeks for the students to explore.

Having a huge map like this was a great way to explore geography in ways that simply isn’t possible using a regular map or even an interactive map on a computer. A map you can walk on?  The students had a great time playing scavenger hunts to locate different landforms, tracing the paths of explorers, playing Simon Says to locate different states, and lots of other activities.

Take a look at some of the fun and learning below.
