Posted on December 1, 2016 with 0 comments

USGIF staff will assist several third grade classrooms with a geospatial activity at Moorefield Station Elementary School in Ashburn, Va., Dec. 6-7. The school rented National Geographic’s Giant Traveling Map of Africa, a tool used for K-12 students to learn geography in a fun and interactive experience.

USGIF will lead an exciting activity in which students will interact with the 26-foot-by-35-foot map of Africa to identify cities across the continent. These simple lessons in satellite imagery will teach students how to think critically and spatially, all while introducing a topic they may not have learned about otherwise.
