40 maps that explain the world By Max Fisher By Max Fisher August 12, 2013 Maps can be a remarkably powerful tool for understanding the world and how it works, but they show only what you ask them to. So when we saw a post sweeping the Web titled "40 maps they didn't teach you in school," one of which happens to be a WorldViews original, I thought we might be able to contribute our own collection. Some of these are pretty nerdy, but I think they're no less fascinating and easily understandable. A majority are original to this blog, with others from a variety of sources.

Biosphere: Erosion Erosion is the process that breaks things down. As far as we're concerned, erosion is the breakdown of the continents and the land around you. The overall effect of breaking down and weathering the land is called denudation. Denudation is the process of erosion. In nature, large things are broken down into smaller things. Boulders become sand.

Using the Web to Take Virtual Field Trips By: Kennedy Schultz Helping kids learn about the world can be an exciting adventure for both adults and kids. When I teach about the chateaux of the Loire Valley in France or ancient Mayan sites in Mexico, I’m always looking for kid-friendly resources that can provide accurate information and engaging authentic pictures that hold the attention of little ones. Atlas for a Changing Planet Understanding natural and human systems is an essential first step toward reducing the severity of climate change and adapting to a warmer future. Maps and geographic information systems are the primary tools by which scientists, policymakers, planners, and activists visualize and understand our rapidly changing world.

World Map Geography Activities For Kids + Free Printable After our Solar System Activities, I figured we needed to talk about things a little closer to home, or at least on our planet. So today I am sharing our World Map activities and free printable that can be used as coloring pages for the continents as well as labels for matching and reading. So when I was in school I remember being taught that there are 7 continents (North America, South America, Asia, Europe, Australia, Africa, Antarctica) and I always thought it was weird that Asia and Europe were considered continents even though they are clearly attached together. Some now believe that there are only 6 continents combining Europe and Asia, and still others believe there are only 5 continents combining North and South America. I really like the 6 continent idea so I made a 7 continent printable and a 6 continent printable to make sure she would learn both ways so she would be familiar with both terms.
