K-12 Education

Our K-12 programs reach thousands of students each year, and we offer resources and training for teachers around the world

Maps teach many lessons

At the Leventhal Map & Education Center, we believe that maps are powerful tools for students to consider their place in their community and the larger world. By looking closely at maps from the past, present and even possible futures, students can connect themselves to larger systems that affect them and propose ideas for change. Giving students the tools to read and understand maps and the time to look closely and deeply at them can expand not only their geographic awareness but also help them to look critically at other sources of information they encounter.

We are offering a select menu of programming through the end of the 2023–24 school year while we prepare for next school year with expanded staff capacity.
