Traveling Map of Asia

The Giant Traveling Map of Asia offers students wide and varied explorations across the continent, an expanse encompassing almost thirty percent of the Earth’s total land mass. While visiting the 26’ x 33’ map, they may brave Arctic tundra, walk the Gobi Desert, and visit the highest and lowest places on Earth. Or they may explore the amazing diversity of human cultures found in Asia’s 47 countries. Whether it’s the birthplace of civilization, nomadic peoples, rainforest tribes, or the world’s fastest growing economies, there is much to explore and learn about on this giant map.

This map is being brought to us by the New Hampshire Geographic Alliance and will be in the Newport Opera House on the 17th, 18th and 19th for schools and educational groups to see and use, free of charge. Call the Newport Opera House Association box office to schedule a time for your class or group to visit the map.
