The Giant Traveling Map of Asia offers students wide and varied explorations across the continent, an expanse encompassing almost thirty percent of the Earth’s total land mass. They may brave Arctic tundra, walk the Gobi Desert, and visit the highest and lowest places on Earth. Or they may explore the amazing diversity of human cultures found in Asia’s 47 countries. Whether it’s the birthplace of civilization, nomadic peoples, rainforest tribes, or the world’s fastest growing economies, there is much to explore and learn about on this giant map. The map is 26’ x 33’ and comes with a trunk of rich activities, games, props and educational resources.
Explore the continent with your students using these educationally powerful and fun activities:
“Geography comes to life when you have a tool like this that matches the scale of students’ imaginations!”
- Herb Thompson, Nevada Geography Teacher

The deep rainforests, endless savanna, and tremendous Sahara become a geographical field trip for your students, who will explore spectacular animals and their habitats, human settlement patterns, and iconic images on this visually stunning map of the continent.
Bringing geography home in a big way for your students, the North America map invites them to traverse the continent from Alaska’s Aleutian Islands to the Panama Canal and from Iceland to Baja. Along the way they will find their familiar home state or province as well as make new and exciting historical and cultural discoveries!
Europe may be the world’s second smallest continent, but this map is just as large as our other Giant Traveling Maps. Your students will explore the continent’s temperate climate, rich natural resources and physical features while analyzing population, human health and economic data from the Middle Ages to the present.
Your students will experience the vast Pacific Ocean’s many marvels: volcanoes giving birth to new islands, deep-sea vents supporting unique life forms, phytoplankton blooms providing over half of the planet’s fresh air, and the Great Barrier Reef – the largest living structure in the world.
Imagine your students scaling the high peaks of the Andes, searching for the ancient city of Machu Picchu, and following the Amazon River from its alpine headwaters thousands of miles through the Brazilian rain forest all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. This and more can happen all in an afternoon at your school on the Giant Traveling Map of South America!
