What Teachers Say

I've Been Using the California Maps for the Last 15 Years!

I have been using the California Maps for the last 15 years and LOVE them. I teach California History to fourth graders and using these large maps help the children locate the various areas needed in our studies. My students use these maps as their 'Map Project'. They are given 4 weeks to label and complete all the locations listed on your maps, including the California Missions. The assignment is done at home with atlases as resources: internet as well. Having them search and research on their own, is a skill in itself. The children have loved the project and are very proud of their work upon its completion.

Students Look Forward to the Maps

I have used Map of the Month for about 10 years. Their customer service is outstanding, and they do their best to get the maps to you quickly. The maps are great! The students learn about the world, and there is always something for them to do when they finish their work. So many of my students love the maps and look forward to doing them. I start off with Map Skills, and that sets the expectation for good work. I then do about six other maps through the year. I love these maps!
