Not only are maps educational, but there’s so much creativity to be had with them. The colors and styles are so vast, and the fact that they can be amazing art pieces is awesome!
I am currently a home schooling Mama, so maps are invaluable to me. I’m also an American Mama living in S. Africa, so U.S.A. maps are even more invaluable. I love my kids being able to see where they come from and where their relatives live. It keeps our heritage alive.
I recently received a USA New Century laminated map from Maps.Com. We.all.love.it. Seriously. My kids have unrolled it numerous times and laid it on the floor to see where different cities are. The other day they were huddled around with their friends talking about places they’ve been and lived. Excitement and education all wrapped into one. Awesomeness.
I really love the rich colors in this map. It almost makes it look older (which I like), and that earthy tone is fabulous. I also love the detail. We were all quite surprised to find some Texas towns on there that we didn’t realize were big enough to make it onto a map!
