    2 hours of professional development

The Arizona Geographic Alliance (AzGA) has wonderful maps and over 330 K-12 lesson plans on its website and now we own two copies of a vinyl map of Arizona provided by National Geographic.  Designed for indoor use, the map is approximately 17 feet by 20 feet and comes with activities and items such as plastic chains, traffic cones, and other manipulatives that can be used on the map.

 This training to use the map allows you to check out the map for your class or school or community group at no or low cost.

 The training is free and limited to 45 participants.  The training is aimed at teachers or administrators but community group leaders are also welcome. Everyone on the map must wear socks to protect the surface of the map. The suggested grade level for using the map is grades 2-6.  It might also be used as a Parent Night Activity.

 Come join us.
