This blog entry tries to answer the question to why all educators should have a world map displayed in their class rooms. If you do not have one download a free world map image clipart picture below, laminate it, and display it at the front of your class.
For Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural purposes I find having a world map on the wall very useful, as when, in a lesson a country or a city comes up in discussions, it is easy to refer to the world map location and participate in some cross curricular questioning.
There are several games that you can play as starters or plenaries to your lesson that include the “capital city” game and “Alphabet” list. I also have a map with pins in indicating the nationalities off all the people that have ever set foot into the class room.
