The Missouri Geographic Alliance houses two giant maps of Missouri, which are available to be borrowed for educational settings. Both were created with the intention to be walked on (while wearing clean socks.) The topographic map created in Missouri with funding from the Missouri GIS Advisory Council and Missouri 4-H measures 15 feet by 15 feet. The State Giant Traveling Map created and supported by National Geographic measures 17 feet by 21 feet.
These maps are fantastic tools to get youth and educators on the map and all over Missouri from the comfort of their gymnasium or classroom. Along with the map, you will receive an educational tool trunk. In the lessons tab underneath the Giant Traveling Map drop down, you will find example lesson plans created by National Geographic and Missouri educators. A list of what all you will receive with the map is found here.
