Thank You! update on the Putting Kids on the Map campaign!

February 2, 2018

The Arizona Geographic Alliance (AzGA) crowdfunding campaign Putting Kids on The Map raised 100% of the $5,000 needed to purchase of a gym sized map of Arizona and build the supporting accessory trunks. In fact, 2 new maps and the accessories needed by teachers to use the maps were purchased.  AzGA wants to thank all who helped us meet this funding goal.  Small amounts from many sources put us over our objective.

AzGA is rolling out the new Arizona Landscape maps during February 2018.  New activities have been created for use on this and the NGS maps.  The accessories to do these new activities are included in the trunks and directions are on our website under Giant Map Activities.  To borrow a map you must be trained and "certified."  Details are under the Giant Floor Map Program button.

The NGS giant floor maps will be moved to Tucson and Yuma by the end of March, or before.  Instructions on how to check out these maps located, we hope, more conveniently to pick up for Arizona teachers in southern Arizona, will be posted as soon as we can.  If, in the meantime, you have questions about this process, please just call us at 480.965.5361.

Thank you so much for your time and support.
