U.S. and World Maps and Puzzles - Free Maps That Teach
Maps that Teach take advantage of the fact that geography is spatial. They also utilize the way kids learn best, by actively participating in their learning; learning by doing. As students assemble the maps, they build a permanent mental picture of their world. From Maps that Teach, a student will learn about the continents and where they are in relation to each other; the countries of the world, their capitals and major cultural landmarks, physical features; what is far and what is near. For the United States, students will learn the states, their capitals, major physical features, and important historic routes that established connections between parts of the country. Students need more than a rote memorization of state names and capitals in order to make U.S. geography meaningful. For each continent or major region of the world, we offer an on-line, interactive map. Each continent's Map Puzzle teaches the name and location of the countries and capitals.
