You might have seen the map sets that come with pins. While those are great learning tools, they might not be the safest option if you have little ones!
They can also be a bit pricey. While they’re often worth it, free is good!
The hands-on lesson and printable set from Research Parent takes care of both problems.
Now, you can easily make a free hands-on activity that’s effective for your older students and a lot safer around your younger ones!
