National Geographic has a new FREE resource for educators: free tabletop-sized state maps.
The maps were designed to reflect spatial thinking research at the elementary level. All maps are the appropriate size and visually represent the appropriate amount of information for K-5 students. However, they can be used by any grade level.
These enormously entertaining and educationally powerful tools for introducing geography and map reading skills to students, grades K-8, can now be ordered for the 2015-2016 school year.

Free print maps and related resources (listed below) are available from the Montana Geographic Alliance. All maps are folded unless otherwise specified. (To order, contact us. Shipping and handling charges may apply for larger orders.)
