In March 2015, MGA will host the Giant Traveling map of the Pacific Ocean. This 25ft by 35 ft. map is offered at $300 per day for elementary and middle schools. A teacher consultant will facilitate the lessons that are all connected to the National Geography Standards. Information about the map and its activities can be viewed at: http://events.nationalgeographic.com/events/special-events/pacific-ocean-map/ If you are interested in hosting the map for a day or more (at a reduced rate), please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. The dates currently available are March 16th through the 26th.
The mission of the Maine Geographic Alliance is to expand and improve geographic education from Pre-Kindergarten through University by assisting educators with high-quality geographic materials, lessons, and workshops for implementing Maine's learning results.
