The premise of our CartoCraze! Expanded Map workshops, what we set out to do when we designed them, is to provide detailed “Extras” that dovetail and enhance the activity maps you are working with in your classroom. In addition to DESERTS, our files cover MOUNTAINS, RIVER and ISLANDS too. When you use this product, your students will really expand their knowledge of the world, beyond just the map-making– adding writing, vocabulary, science, math, history and more!
