The World map will be a favorite first map and children will
fall in love with pinning. They will be drawn to the scenic pictures in the mapís legend, which helps them
understand the biomes of the world. They
will see the tropical trees in the dark green rain forests, the sand in the
golden deserts and the salty waves in the pastel blue oceans. Their introduction to the flag labels will be
the activity of pinning the 7 continents, 5 oceans, cardinal directions and
geographic lines. After they have
mastered the oceans and continents, the children will be excited to pin the
symbols on the map. They will explore
the world to pin mountain ranges, peaks, volcanos, lakes, rivers, islands and
waterfalls. The pinned map is a
beautiful achievement with all its colorful flags.
