Introducing a new series of National Geographic maps designed specifically for kids. Our new graded-series of maps are the first to address the unique needs of K-12 students as they advance their understanding of our world.
Unlike other classroom poster maps, ours utilize the Winkel-Triple projection, which provides the best combination of size, shape, and distance giving students the best visual representation of the Earth’s surface. This solves the effect seen on other maps where Greenland appears larger than South America.
Our Beginners' Series map of the world is easy to read and perfect for young learners in kindergarten through third grade. This map is laminatedfeaturing a "write and wipe" surface and durable plastic covering.
Comments about Beginners World Education Map (Grades K-3):
The description didn't mention this map is laminated. That might be a drawback if you're expecting to frame it, but I wanted to avoid the expense of framing so this is a great benefit for me.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
