Giant Traveling Maps

Home » Events » Giant Traveling Maps


Want to have some enormous fun?  Have one of the National Geographic Society giant traveling maps visit your school.  The VGA will be hosting 1 giant traveling maps in the 2014-2015 school year. 

These huge floor maps of the continents are made to walk on.  Each map is approximately 26' by 35', and comes with a trunk full of ideas and materials for many different lessons.  The activities incorporate physical movement and games to teach geography and map reading skills for grades K-8.

Each map costs $75/day, and the borrowing school must transport the map and trunk to the next Vermont school on the list.  The maps are rolled into a 10' long transportation tube that can transported by a large van or a pick-up truck.   

Let us know if you want to reserve a giant traveling map for next school year.  Sign up early and get the dates of your choice!  Contact VGA Office Manager Keighan Chapman   for more information.
