Thursday’s Teaching Tips – Oh The Places You’ll Go Map Decor

July 14, 2011

My friend, Kristin, at Life’s Small Moments, has come up with an awesome geography project for her son that is both educational and stylish!!! I fell in love with the idea the moment I saw her post it and begged for a tutorial.

She also put some local map inserts into frames to go along with this to focus on their locations. I think it’s a great learning aid for a kids’ room that is more personalized than just a regular wall map. And think of all the ways you can incorporate this into learning – Flat Stanley travels, where we’ve been in books, where we went on summer vacation, where is my family, History/Georgraphy studies, etc.

So head over to Kristin’s blog to read up on the tutorial – I’d love to hear and see if you do the project!

Fair warning, she has music on her blog, so you’ll want to turn down your speakers first.
