Make maps magnetic

December 17, 2012

Do you have students who can show you better than they can tell you? Create these simple magnet maps to allow students to answer questions without having to write or explain an answer. Let them show you regions of the United States. Ask them to point to the states, cities, or landmarks you are studying. Have them assemble the map without cues or a visual.  Check out La Casa de Crafts or Satori Smiles for information on how to create your own magnetic map. Or, if you want to reverse the idea, you can visit this link at Apartment Therapy and make an entire board from map materials.

Keep in mind, you don’t have to use magnets only on maps, you can create magnetic puzzles, words/letters, graphs, charts, or geometric shapes.

    Hi Natalie– Sorry, I think we had posted the pin referred to instead of the image on the page. To avoid any confusion, we just deleted the image for this one. Thanks for letting us know!
