World Map Posters

Updated on February 3, 2014

World Map Poster

During the earlier years of our homeschooling, we had a world map poster on our dining room / school table because there was no room on the walls. To protect the map, I made a transparent tablecloth from some thick plastic, sewing elastic around the edges so it easily stayed on the table. We would refer to this world map regularly while studying literature, history, Bible, current affairs and more. It stayed there on the table for many years until the plastic cover deteriorated.

Whether you put your world map poster on a table or on a wall, it will have great educational value partly because it is so easily accessible. Atlases are great, but it's more effort to first find the book then find the page with the map you want to investigate. A world map poster is always in view and information will be absorbed almost without trying.

This page not only includes world maps suitable for kids but also posters suitable to be used in offices and other work places or as stylish talking points in your home.

This print should be quite the talking point. How is it different from today's version? Which countries / continents are missing?

 

world map in words

I find this map absolutely fascinating and suspect that it would be a real talking point as well as proving to be quite educational because you would read the names every time you looked at the map.

It could also inspire an art / geography assignment for older children to try to make their own word map, maybe on a computer using a graphics program with layers, putting an outline map on the first layer and then using a text tool to fill in the countries with their names on a second layer.

      We have some very old, large world maps on the wall. They are certainly entertaining but not current. I like these and am considering updating at least one so our child can learn the current names and locations of countries. Very helpful and saved for future use.

      We homeschool too, and have both a World map as well as a US map. We love referring to them to find out where places we've read about are located!

      I think having a map up at all times is a great idea, and I think it's an even better idea to have it on the table since you spend time there every day.

      Since we already have a plain old boring world map for the wall, I loved seeing these different styles - and especially liked the placemats!
