The best kind of learning is hands-on learning and Pin It! Maps bring an incredible hands-on experience to geography. We discovered Pin It! Maps the first year we were using workbooks. Each week, Megan was supposed to fill in a blank outline map in her geography book.
She hated it. The maps were confusing and difficult to decipher. Then, we found Pin It! Maps.
What are Pin It! Maps?
These big, gorgeously-detailed maps bring geography to life! The Ultimate Bundle includes 12 pin maps, 43 labeled maps, and 1,752 flags. All those maps, pins, and flags mean the bundle is incredibly versatile for teaching world geography and U.S. history and geography to kids from kindergarten all the way through high school.
The sets contain pin maps (for pinning the included country, state, and historical flags) and control maps featuring countries, flags, states, landforms, and bodies of water. We love the fact that the control maps are broken down into different topics.
So, for example, if your child is labeling the countries of Europe, the control map features only the countries. There is a separate control map for landforms. This allows a student to concentrate on one aspect of the maps without getting bogged down by too much detail.
What is including in the Pin It! Maps Ultimate Bundle?
The Ultimate Bundle, valued at nearly $320, includes:
- Twelve 18 x 24″ Pin Maps (USA, US History 1800s, Early America, World, North America, South America, Central America/ Caribbean, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia/ Oceania, and Land & Water Forms)
- Four 18 x 24 x .5″ foam sheets and one 9 x 24 x .5″ foam sheet with plastic corners for the pin maps
- Forty-one 12 x 18″ labeled maps
- Two 6 x 18″ labeled land and water maps
- 1,752 flag labels, national, state, and historical flags (cut and ready to assemble)
- Plastic flag poles and flag bases
- 1/2″ Transparent Scotch tape for colored flag labels
- 3/4″ Transparent Scotch tape for national flags
Due to safety concerns in shipping, the set does not include the straight pins needed to assemble the flag pins. They can be purchased on Amazon or at craft and hobby stores.
