Carisa takes a fun and alternative approach to teaching geography in her homeschool.
Learning U.S.A. geography doesn’t have to be boring. My family has a new favorite resource for hands-on U.S.A. states and capitals fun that I want to share with you today. If you are looking to add a resource to your homeschool supply stash, this is one I recommend.
We have a new favorite, you can see the full review here, with a video! Educents sent us this awesome USA Map Wall Play Set, and we look forward to using this for fun review all year long! There’s also a mini set here if you don’t have space for the big set!
Already this has been a fabulous resource, and I am so thankful to have it! It will provide loads of hands-on review!
My main concern was durability and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the small pieces to see if I felt they would really resist ripping and wrinkling. I am pleased to say that I am very impressed so far. They really do bend and twist as shown in the video on this page.
Here’s a bit about the material the map is made out of. As a mom I was concerned about these things. Now that I have seen it and felt it, I can say it’s true!
- A fabric that is endlessly adhesive because it’s cleanable – all it needs is a little rubbing alcohol
- A fabric that is durable – tearing and ripping is out of the question
- A fabric that has maximum versatility – walls become a creative canvas
- A fabric that is safe for every family – No BPA, lead or PVC
My goal in using this map for our homeschooling this year is to consistently review state locations, names, and capitals. We learned all of them last year and this map came at a perfect time for a fun way to provide hands-on review. I am thrilled!
I definitely recommend investing in this map if you are looking for something interactive like this. Initially I thought it was a bit pricey but now that we have it, I see it is totally different than other wall decal sets we have used in the past.
