This year we are using trail guide to US geography so I decided to add a fun project. Every year I do a fun enormous wall project. Last year was a 10 foot great wall of China. This year we are doing a 9 by 6 foot map of the US. It has been a ton of work but it is finally coming together. I just wanted to share. I got the template for $5 off geography matters website.

They are enjoying it now that it starting to look like something. They weren't crazy about all the cutting. LOL. I wasn't either. Now we are able to work on the fun part.

That had to have been a lot of cutting, and I'll bet there were quite a few hand cramps invoved.  It looks great though.

We will be using it for map work like labeling cities and major rivers. We will places books we read on it as well. When we read little house on the prairie or other non-fiction and historical fiction books we will label the setting of the book on the map. We are currently reading The Caption's Dog which is the story of Lewis and Clark from the point of view from his dog so we will mark Lewis and Clark's trail on the map.

I also forgot to add that the states will be put on using velcro. We will be able to take it down and up like a giant puzzle.
