One of our favorite activities this week was getting to visit the Giant Asia Map from National Geographic! Our home-school group had nearly 60 students take advantage of this.
"The Giant Traveling Map of Asia offers students wide and varied explorations across the continent, an expanse encompassing almost thirty percent of the Earth’s total land mass. They may brave Arctic tundra, walk the Gobi Desert, and visit the highest and lowest places on Earth. Or they may explore the amazing diversity of human cultures found in Asia’s 47 countries. Whether it’s the birthplace of civilization, nomadic peoples, rainforest tribes, or the world’s fastest growing economies, there is much to explore and learn about on this giant map. The map is 26’ x 33’ and comes with a trunk of rich activities, games, props and educational resources."
Emma and Tyler are studying the Middle East as mart of their history, so they really enjoyed seeing how the Middle East was a part of Asia, and touched Europe and Africa.
