We believe learning should be fun 😉
So we operate a schools programme as part of our CSR ~
We supply bundles of our Australia maps in classroom lots as a school resource for children to enjoy using in class projects.
As we come to the end of another school year its great looking back to see what wonderful projects have been embarked upon and achieved using our Journey Jottings pictorial maps 😀
We supplied a primary school in Western Australia with a school classroom set of our Australia maps to be used as part of a project about Australia’s Mineral Resources.
Their inspired teacher sent me some images of the children working on their studies, which…
…illustrates their work as they completed writing pertinent facts and figures relating to their topic in the boxes around the pictorial map of Australia.
Which I’m sure you’ll agree looks wonderful!
An extremely impressive body of work 🙂
They then went to work to produce illustrated individual stories, click here to see those.
Do you have children in school or know of a local school that could make use of our maps as part of the children’s learning?
Pass on the above link ~ And tell them to get in touch!
Have you used a Map Journal that you’d like to show off? Leave a message in the comments so we can get in touch and upload your images on our Where we’ve been seen page 🙂
What do you think about making learning *fun*?
Wow, some terrific maps there. What a great way to engage children!

Thanks Frank ~
My learnings of Mineral Resources when at school was a lot drier than this creative approach, which for many years totally put me off geography 🙁
My love of landscape and physical geography happily finally re-surfaced as I took it upon myself to explore the real world… thank goodness 😉
This looks fantastic! I always enjoyed map based activities when I was at school – but this is taking it to a new level!
Thanx for visiting my blog – come back anytime!
