Maps. Maps. And more maps.

Have I ever told you how much I like maps? I mean, in the last 24 hours? Cause if you’ve been to History Tech even just a couple of times, you know this already.

I love maps.

And thanks to Mike Hasley over at Henrico County Public Schools, I’ve got a couple extra websites to play with.

The first is titled, wait for it . . . Maps. Simple name for a site that has a ton a great map links. Created by the Arizona Geographic Alliance, the site has a definite southwestern feel. But if you’re looking for some handy outline maps of basic sorts of things, this is the place to go.

The Bedford/St. Martin’s textbook people have put together a useful site of 59 maps. Browse by American or World maps, check the maps you want, and the site will download all of the maps in a zip file directly to your desktop. The nice thing is that there are some cool historical maps as well as basic outline maps.

The best thing? Access is free.

  1. Thanks for the shout out. Now, if you know of a site that has great maps, but the oceans and water are white, that would be perfect. Our state uses that model for our EOC tests, yet, most maps you find have the water colored in, which makes more sense. What I end up doing is photoshopping maps, but sometimes it doesn’t work. It’s amazing how hard it is for kids to find easily identifiable places on the map, but b/c the water is white, they get confused.

      Weird. Why would they do that? Just seems like it would be much easier to use what everyone else in the world uses.

      Good luck with that!
