40 Maps They Didn’t Teach You In School By the time we graduate high school, we learn that they never taught us the most interesting things in there.

To fill this gap, we have gathered a great and informative selection of infographical maps that they should’ve shown us at school: every single one of these maps reveals different fun and interesting facts, which can actually help you draw some pretty interesting conclusions.
