What is Geo-literacy?

Geo-literacy extends far beyond knowing where places are on a map.  National Geographic Education has put an emphasis on geoliteracy, which entails spatial thinking skills and understanding systems in addition to content knowledge about locations and places.

Geo-literacy extends far beyond knowing where places are on a map.  National Geographic Education has put an emphasis on geo-literacy, which entails spatial thinking skills and understanding systems in addition to content knowledge about locations and places.

In AP Human Geo., this relates to the concepts of geo-literacy and spatial perspective because it indicates that for a population to be knowledgeable about geography, it must go above the mere rote memorization of toponyms and instead explore the spatial characteristics of places.

Cartographically Inspired Fashion: for the APHuG fashionistas! | Southmoore AP Human Geography | Scoop.it

I found this on pinterest (where else?) and decided to share the cartographic love. 

 

1. Paint your nails white/cream

2. Soak nails in alcohol for five minutes

3. Press nails to map and hold

4. Paint with clear protectant immediately after it dries. 

 

This also works with newspaper, etc!!

Of course this is for the geography nerds! Glad you like it and you'll have to show me (since it really isn't my style).

Uñas de mapa :DD

This also works with newspaper, but don't try it with NatGeo Maps because the paper is of too high a quality to have the ink bleed out; I would recommend using an old USGS Topo map.
