Students With Maps

I KNOW MY WAY LLC

Can Your Students Find their Way Using a Map?

Learning how to navigate on maps, whether its through forests, parks or cities, teaches us so much more than just how to get from where we are to where we want to go. We learn how to make decisions, solve problems, trust our own knowledge. The power of these skills and the confidence we gain are useful in all areas of our life. And having fun, outdoor exercise and the appreciation of nature are a welcome bonus.

Anyone can learn to read maps, together with others or on their own, from ages 5 to 95+. Maps are the true magic in a treasure hunt.
