Zoom Into Maps

Many state standards include activities such as reading, analyzing and creating maps. This map-centric site can help. It leads students through basic map reading skills, using historic maps whose subjects include: migration, settlement, travel, transportation, and military campaigns. Some are pictorial maps. There is also a section, called Unusual Maps, offering ways to use such maps in the classroom. This engagingly interactive site also includes a graphic organizer.
