Experience on-the-map activities that you can do with your school or classroom.
Learn how you can check out the map at low or no cost to you or your school.
Enjoy a fast-paced training session where you become “certified” to check out the map.
Learn what resources are available from the Alliance that will make your teaching of geography much easier.
Not only does the Arizona Geographic Alliance have wonderful maps and over 330 K-12 lesson plans on its website but we now own a vinyl map of Arizona, designed for indoor use, that is approximately 17 feet by 20 feet. Activities come with the map as well as items such as plastic chains, traffic cones, and other manipulatives that can be used on the map.

Teachers and administrators from any location are encouraged and welcome to register and attend any AzGA Giant Map workshop so you do not need to be a Peoria teacher to attend. The workshops are free, but you must register.

This training to use the map allows you to check out the map for your class or school.

The training is free and limited to 35 teachers and /or administrators. 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 though it is easily adaptable to higher grades.

Come join us.

NOTE: Please bring a pair of socks. Socks are required to walk on the map. NO bare feet, NO shoes.

NOTE: Teachers and administrators from ALL districts are welcome to attend this training.
