Worldview Maps
created by Susie Ward Aber

Practical Ideas

This is a collection of worldview maps. Exploring maps and worldviews can be fun for the student. An online map introduction can be accessed for an introduction (from ESU, James S. Aber). Maps and projections can be investigated for different levels of learning with Map Adventures (gr. K-3), What Do Maps Show (gr. 4-8), and Exploring Maps (gr. 7-12). Images and maps could be explored on the internet with a type of cartographic treasure hunt.
