Explore The Power of Maps – Geography Awareness Week

Geography Awareness Week (GeoWeek) is celebrated every third week of November.

Celebrate and explore the power of maps November 15 – 21, 2015. Spatial thinking through maps is one of the most important skills that students can develop as they learn geography, Earth and environmental sciences, and so much more.

This year’s theme of “declaring your interdependence” promotes geo-literacy and explores the idea that one is constantly making connections all over the world through the things they buy, the foods they eat, and the decisions they make. To find out more go to www.geographyawarenessweek.org
