National Geographic has a new resource for educators: FREE tabletop-sized state maps.
The maps were designed to reflect spatial thinking research at the elementary level. All maps visually represent the appropriate amount of information for K-5 students. However, they can be used by any grade level. Click here to find the map of Colorado. Look for state GeoTours coming soon from National Geographic!
