The Map Skills interactive whiteboard series introduces Grade 6-8 students to our world – a world they can explore with the touch of a finger! Over the course of seven interactive lesson plans, students are taken on an in-depth, interactive tour of the continents. A wide variety of full-color maps by Rand McNally portray important map skills and distinctive features, from latitude, longitude, and cardinal directions to countries, climate, and natural resources. Each map can be manipulated in real-time – touch a country to see photographs, video, or statistics; calculate the coordinates of a country’s capital by pointing to its location; explore an ocean’s depths by tapping it with a digital pen – the powers of exploration and discovery are the students’ to wield. Approximately 75 slides for use on IWBs, projectors, tablets, slates, PC & MAC.
