National Geographic Maps: Tools for Adventure

National Geographic Maps: Tools for Adventure

This site has information about maps and introduces map skills.  Check out the interactive map games– great for practicing map skills as a group or even independently/pairs in the lab.  The games are geared more toward elementary, in my opinion, but the “For Educators” section has lesson plans for K-12.

“Related Links” has some links to interactive maps and map adventures (like Lewis and Clark).  There is also a section with real-life Explorers and How They Use Maps.
