Giant floor maps
Canadian Geographic Education’s giant floor map program is a free resource offered to Canadian teachers from Kindergarten to grade 12. Each floor map comes complete with a trunk of additional supplies to further enhance students’ experience including map legends, activity cards, props and more. In addition, a teacher guide with ten curriculum-linked activities will help bring the map to life.
Each floor map is made of heavy-stock vinyl and measures roughly half the size of a school’s gymnasium.
The following giant floor maps are available for booking:
