Maps & Globes


  While teaching social studies, you need materials to display what you talk about. Various globes and maps are ideal for studying geography and environment. Maps tell you about the world, astronomical objects like stars and planets, countries and many other things. With the help of a globe, you can travel anywhere - to deserts, seas or forests. Moreover, you can imagine being on the top of the highest mountain or the bottom of the deepest ocean. Maps also show you locations of cities and towns, wildlife habitats and ways how to get home. Besides, children can easily learn sizes and borders of different countries, as well as the topography of a near area.

How to Choose a Type of a Map

   Before buying a map, you should decide what you want to teach or learn. The choice depends on the theme of a class, your wish or interest. In fact, this may also influence the decision of picking a globe. Remember that map symbols, details, pictures are essential characteristics of geographic materials. So, you should pay attention to these features while buying the item. As there are many types of globes and maps, see our explanation so that you wouldn't get confused.

  • A physical map shows geographical features like mountains, rivers, glaciers, oceans, valleys, etc. In other words, the physical map focuses on landforms and ecosystems. The purpose of this map type is to show the surface relief, soil type, and infrastructure.
  • A political map demonstrates boundaries of countries, counties, and states. Each country has its unique color or color hue. Hence you'll easily distinguish one territory from another. The purpose of the political map is to focus on territorial borders.
  • A topographic map marks the detailed graphics presentation of surface features. Such features are roads, rivers, railway lines, buildings, land use. Moreover, this map displays administrative boundaries, reserves, and international borders. You can use the topographic map when going hiking, camping, hunting or you want to study the terrain.
  • A thematic map displays a particular theme regarding a specific geographic area. For instance, this map focuses on social, cultural, economic or other aspects of a country, city or region. Thematic maps present specific data that you can analyze and use in scientific research.
