For Educators

In reply to an inquiry about educational resources for primary school students, Tom Sander made the following suggestions:

As the WMS is really more into historical mapping and the history of cartography,  I suspect a fine place to refer the writer  is the American Association of Geographers.   Their members have many more younger members, many in the ‘trade.’

Perhaps an even better lead would be to the National Geographic Society. See .  They are heavily involved in K-12 education.

Sorry the writer is not near Portland Maine, and the Univ of Southern Maine’s Osher Map Library .  There are LOTS of teacher resources at this link.

Yet another great resource is the Boston Public Library’s Leventhal Map Center.  Lick on then on the tab marked FOR TEACHERS.  Lots of great resources at that site for teachers.
