National Education Association: Teaching with Maps

This resource list from retired middle school teacher Phil Nast is packed with links to map-related resources around the web. Here educators will find links to lesson plans about latitude and longitude, topographic maps, historical maps, and genomic maps. There is also an Activities & Games section, where readers may link to engaging activities like Galaxy Zoo, which invites students to learn about galaxies according to their shape, and ISS EarthKAM, in which students may take pictures of earth from a digital camera on the International Space Station. In addition, the Background Resources section includes map making guides for a number of different grade levels, and the Videos and Interactives section provides links engaging multimedia. For instance, in Mapping the Universe, viewers "fly backward through more than half a million galaxies and quasars." Educators will find much to celebrate on this resource-rich page.
