I home school my daughter and I found this pack really useful as we are doing a topic on Europe and Famous Explorers. This teaching pack gave my daughter inspiration to create her own maps and learn more about the history of map making. The resources on this site are fantastic , thank you for all your hard work .

A good Pack.

This is a good Teaching Pack. It does contain many useful resources, and any teacher from, I'd say, Years 2-8 who is teaching mapping skills will find many useful resources here. some of it we have seen before, from the Coordinates Pack, but there are new resources as well. I think, though, that there is room for improvement in this Pack. Maps - geography itself - are full of wonder and amazing things, and yet they are often seen as being boring. I was hoping that the Maps Pack would inspire children to explore the world and see the amazing things in it. There are some good touches in this regard - the ppt, pdf and video Guides contain some wonderful images and link to a number of interesting topics, including latitude and longitude; and I especially like the colouring pages. I think it would be nice if this Pack could show how maps can show the wonders of the world.
