PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson elaborates on the concept of a map with two presentations: a short history of maps (The Story of Maps) and then a demonstration showing how one can make pictures on a sphere lay flat.

Included are:
the story to be read to the children;
recommended pictures to accompany the story;
10 book links to support the story and themes;
and instructions for demonstrating the idea of map projection.

An excellent extension to this story is to place the pictures and paragraphs along a timeline. If you would like to place events and persons along a timeline, see my printable timeline: Printable Time Line (40,000 BC to 2000 AD)

This story is a nice extension to The History of Writing. If you would like to present the history of writing as an introduction, see these lessons:

The History of Writing lesson is excerpted from The Complete Montessori Language Arts Teacher's Manual–PDF
