This Geography Awareness Week, get lost in mapping! From November 15-21, go to GeographyAwarenessWeek.org for games, activities, and lessons about mapping that you can do at home or at school, brought to you by National Geographic and partner organizations. Explore maps big and small, high-tech and low-tech!
At GeographyAwarenessWeek.org, you can piece together a poster-size map for your bedroom wall or a giant map for your school gymnasium. Take a virtual world tour with Google Earth and watch a video that explains how today’s geospatial revolution is changing everything from shipping to warfare. Test your skills with the Expedition 2 game and a Mystery Location quiz. You can even join 100,000 “map activists” by participating in a blog-a-thon, hosting a Geography Awareness Week event, or signing up for the new GeoMentor program. There’s something for everyone at GeographyAwarenessWeek.org. So get lost in mapping: Find your place in the world!
