What to Expect

The map is vinyl and folded for travel. It can fit a space slightly larger than 14 x 21 feet if there are no desks or other objects in the classroom. Having enough space for students to sit around the map is preferred, so a library or a gymnasium is a great spot. The space should be flat and can be carpeted or wood. The floor should be vacuumed or swept prior to the arrival of the map. It does not take long to set up once the space is prepared. Instructions and materials are included with the map. Check out the video below from National Geographic of the map in use.
