What type of map should I have in my classroom?

Selecting a Classroom Map

Although selecting a classroom map may seem like a simple process, it is often a much more difficult process than anticipated by many educators. This is because they must consider a wide range of factors including the purpose of the class, the size of the class, the appearance of the map as well as the price of the map.

The classroom map chosen should be appropriate for the size of the classroom, the subject matter taught in the classroom and should fit within the school's budget. The size of the map factors into the decision because the map should be large enough to be visible by all students in the class without being too cumbersome for the size of the classroom. The map should also be relevant to the subject matter taught in the classroom.

The options available may include world maps, political maps, history maps, state maps and physical maps. There may even be combination maps available. Finally, it is important to consider the price of the map. Larger maps made of higher quality and with greater detail will likely be on the more expensive end of the price spectrum while smaller, less detailed maps will likely cost less.
