The Giant Map of Colorado, an oversized vinyl floor map (14' x 21'), is designed to encourage geographic learning through physical movement and games, teaching place names, physical geography, and cultural geography as well as map reading skills. Based on the national giant traveling map program featuring continents and the Pacific Ocean, National Geographic created a giant map of each state to travel to schools, libraries, and museums. Now you can purchase a Giant Map for your own school, district, or region. Visit the National Geographic website for details
