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. http://www.aag.org/cs/about_aag   Their members have many more younger members, many in the ‘trade.’

Perhaps an even better lead would be to the National Geographic Society. See https://www.nationalgeographic.org/education/ .  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 http://mapplay.oshermaps.org/ .  There are LOTS of teacher resources at this link.

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