Cartography for Geography

  • Cartography [ kahr-tog-ruh-fee ] noun 1. the science and art of making maps
  • Geography [ jee-og-ruh-fee ] noun 1. the science dealing with the areal differentiation of the earth’s surface

So “Cartography for Geography” is where we create/draw maps in order to learn about the earth’s surface.

Drawing maps is such a great way to learn geography. It combines visual and kinesthetic activities while helping a student notice details. You don’t have to produce a beautiful map in order to learn the shapes of places or their names. The goal is just to learn!

It’s easy- I promise! Let me show you.
