WHAT THE STUDENTS ARE SAYING:

"Before, when I heard the name of a country, I just thought of it as a name, and it didn't really matter to me. After you do a memory map, it's kinda neat because you can picture it in your mind, not only that country and what it's like there, but everything else around it. You have a map in your head wherever you go."  - Seventh Grader, Belmont, MA

13 to 20 April, 2014

The U.S. National Atlas
The National Atlas is going away! The last date that the National Atlas will be in service will be September 30, 2014. After that time, visitors will be directed to The National Map, a different, useful, but much less detailed USGS product. Use the time between now and the end of September to browse and download what you may find useful, including population, economy, infrastructure, natural resources, environment, government, and history of the Nation.

6 to 13 April, 2014

Current Position of the ISS
Where is the International Space Station right now? This little "Astroviewer" will show you. The view is shown as "what the astronauts see right now". You can open a secondary map by clicking the "snapshot" button, or see the larger, whole-Earth map just below the moving map. The map is detailed, and the ISS moves very fast, making a complete circuit of the Earth in about 90 minutes. Fascinating. Even addictive.

30 March to 6 April, 2014

Mountain Voices
How does development affect individuals in different countries? Oral testimonies have been gathered from mountain communities in ten countries -- in the Himalaya, the Andes, the Sierra Norte, Mount Elgon, the highlands of Ethiopia and Lesotho, China, the Sudety mountains and the Karakorum mountains. Students can learn of the past and present of many native peoples in the world, as well as the realities of the global economy in these regions.
