Map Visits University


The School of Education hosted a large floor map of South America from National Geographic Fri, Oct. 21, 2011.. The map measures 26 feet by 35 feet and provides an interactive learning experience. Visitors and students were able to:

  • walk across the high peaks of the Andes,
  • search for the ancient city of Machu Picchu, or 
  • follow the Amazon Rivers from its headwaters thousands of miles through the Brazilian rainforest all the way to the Atlantic Ocean.


Host: Kristin J. Alvarez, associate professor, School of Education

Made possible by LENS program grant funding and in collaboration with the University of Redlands School of Education. A hands-on lesson to promote spatial literacy and learning for primary and secondary students in the Inland Empire, and beyond.
