Interactive Maps

Interactive Maps are tied to assessment and encourage students’ geographical and historical thinking by demonstrating events like changing boundaries and migration routes, war battles and election results. Students can manipulate and consider data to help them better understand change over time.

Maps in Context

Maps in Context give students a hands-on understanding of how geography can shape history. These maps help students explore and contextualize history by providing a narrative overview to place map information in context as well as advanced navigation features to manipulate key geographic details.
