This is a laminated map, making it very durable. Unlike other types of lamination, the heavy film stays flat without curling. It’s also crack- and peel-resistant. The laminate is thin enough to allow holes to be poked through when mounting with tacks. Bright colors are used with cartographic detail to make specific countries stand out, and the 3D ocean and land topographic shading is a highlight. As one of the largest world maps on the market, it is ideal for both classroom and home use. The white border makes it look professional and enhances the design once on display.

Expert Commentary

“Allowing children to learn geography in an interactive manner is crucial if you want to plant the seeds of global awareness when they are very young. Laminated maps work very well if you are concerned about dirty hands or spilled substances, and both of these happen — especially with younger children. If you can connect the maps with other stories you are reading, it can help both the story and the map come to life.”
