This is a great motivational tool for students (6 to 12 years old). They become more daring to ask/answer questions in Italian and for you becomes easier to assess their proficiency in Italian. They usually collect stamps on it and receive a small prize/reward at the end of the Term. You can hand out stickers as well to fill it in. Students often go back to this map to see how close they are to their goal. Great visual motivator.
This rewarding map comes with a bonus Italian Borders/Frame, where to stick the picture of the weekly Italian star (the star of your class) or making special certificates of achievements framed with it.
