This is National Geographic’s Beginners USA Education map of the world at 51” x 40”, which is intended for grades K-3. National Geographic’s graded-series of maps are the first to address the unique needs of K-12 students as they advance their understanding of our World, so you can stick with the National Geographic family of maps as your child advances in their education. Unlike other classroom maps, this world maps use the Winkel-Triple projection, which provides the best combination of size, shape, and distance giving the student the best visual representation of the Earth’s surface in two dimensions. This solves the effect seen on other maps where Greenland appears larger than South America. Insets include multiple explanations on how to use the map, including an explanation on how to find places on a map, an explanation of the legend, the map grid, and continents & hemispheres. A smaller world map at the top center shows physical terrain. Size: 51? x 40?
