Not only does the Arizona Geographic Alliance have wonderful maps and over 330 K-12 lesson plans on its website but we now own two vinyl maps of Arizona, designed for indoor use, that is approximately 17 feet by 20 feet. Activities come with the map as well as items such as plastic chains, traffic cones, and other manipulatives that can be used on the map.
If you wish to borrow the Giant Arizona Traveling Map, you must be certified through one of the AzGA GTM workshops.
The training is free and limited to 35 teachers and /or administrators. Everyone on the map must wear socks to protect the surface of the map. The suggested grade level for using the map is grades 2-6 or as a Parent Night Activity.
Come join us.
NOTE: Please bring a pair of socks. Socks are required to walk on the map. NO bare feet, NO shoes.
NOTE: Teachers and administrators from ALL districts are welcome to attend this training.
