This is a great example of how to use the Infographic format to educate and share knowledge with others.  It make sense that a teacher would do it.  Fantastic!

Atlas of True Names

Atlas of True Names | Social Studies Tools | Scoop.it

The Atlas of True Names reveals the etymological roots, or original meanings,
of the familiar terms on today's maps of the World, Europe, the British Isles and the United States.

For instance, where you would normally expect to see the Sahara indicated,
the Atlas gives you "The Tawny One", derived from Arab. es-sahra “the fawn coloured, desert”.
