April 22-23…. National Geographic’s Giant Traveling Maps
- Thanks to a partnership with the Texas Tech College of Education, visitors to the National Ranching Heritage Center will be exploring South America in a big way — with one of the world’s largest maps of the continent. The map, measuring 35 feet by 26 feet and weighing 102 pounds, will provide visitors with a fun, interactive experience through rich content and exciting activities that enliven the study of geography. The South American map, designed for grades K-8, comes with a trunk of accessories that include interactive activities, games, books, videos and music that educate users about the physical characteristics of the continent as well as its rich history and varied cultures. Among the activities included with the South America map are “Cultural Geography Relay,” in which visitors use photos of festivals, music, crafts and sports to learn about the continent’s colorful and diverse cultural life; “Walkabout: South America,” which explores the numerous mountains, rivers, waterfalls and other geographic features; and “The Voyage of the H.M.S. Beagle,” which retraces the voyage of Charles Darwin along the continent’s coastline through excerpts from his journals. “Usually only super-athletes can run across South America,” said Dan Beaupré, National Geographic’s director of education partnerships for National Geographic Live. “With the introduction of this continent to our expanding roster of giant maps, we look forward to educating a new class of geographic explorers, whether they be kids or kids-at-heart.” To learn more about the Giant Traveling Map project, for borrowing information or to download map activities, visit www.nationalgeographic.com/giantmaps.
