World Map Project Resources
Hey PCVs - Many of you express interest in making World Maps at your schools. It is a great project and enables you to integrate maths, English, Geography, civics, etc. into a simple and fun activity with students and teachers! I have attached the document here, but also here's a link to the official Peace Corps website where the ICE manual for World Maps exists: http://theworldmapproject.com/
As usual, I promote doing this the way a luddite would! Try doing the map project witout fancy projectors, which aren't as helpful as your students learn about grids, longitude/latitude, scale, or allow them to adapt the principals to another project, etc. Try it free-hand, using simple tools from days gone by, and see how this can open young minds to new ways of thinking!
