Look for state GeoTours from National Geographic!
Thanks to Sarah Richings-Germain who created a fantastic GeoTour of Colorado. These maps provide good introductions for elementary students to think about important locations and landmarks in states across the country. Share the maps with your students, and then invite them to make their own maps using MapMaker interactive.
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.
