Greece - Map from Memory
Client: Leading Learning (Education) Ltd
Merritt Cartographic worked with Leading Learning (Education) Ltd to develop a 'map from memory' activity for use in the classroom. Aimed at children aged between 7 and 9, this map and associated resources were created to help children develop their visual literacy skills.
A 'map from memory' activity involves groups, in this instance groups of children, working together. Each group or team reviews a complete version of a map, for a limited amount of time, before attempting to fill in the gaps on an incomplete version of the same map. Teamwork, communication skills and strategic thinking help make a 'map from memory' activity a fun and enjoyable learning experience, whilst a greater understanding of geography and cartography can be developed at the same time.
Merritt Cartographic has developed a large number of maps for educational books and resources and can assist you to find the right solution for your project.
Additional maps, used in the 'map from memory' task, included in the resource pack.
