The Problem

According to a 2015 report to Congress, 73% of American eighth graders tested below the proficiency level in geography. This translates to a lack of knowledge about the world and critical thinking skills necessary to navigate it. The lack of analytical and interpretative skills also undermines their ability to make a positive impact in the future. Building students' understanding of the world and the interconnectedness of its physical systems helps them develop good decision-making skills. 

Our Solution

To address this situation in Arizona, we would like to create a gym-size traveling map of Arizona and develop related educational materials. The map will invite students to explore their State in a very unique way - with their hands and feet! It will spark their imaginations and open up new avenues for learning about the world around them. The curriculum and materials will include games and interactive activities that teach them how to measure distance, understand where their water comes from, how diverse Arizona's geography is, and many, many other things. 

How You Can Help

Imagine a map of Arizona as big as a gym floor! Then imagine students learning on that map. Now, stop imagining and help us create a giant traveling map of Arizona and related materials to come to your child's/grandchild's school or community library.
