A wall map is clearly useful for your child’s geography lessons, but non-students can use one for understanding the location of world events, the proximity of reported weather threats, and travel plans. Most wall maps are colorful to help differentiate one place from another, though less colorful ones exist. Some are rather small (for instance, 3’ x 2’) while others are huge (for example, 6.5’ x 4’). Some wall maps are laminated while others are not, so consider whether the map will be handled frequently by children who like to touch things or used only occasionally by hands-off adults. Look for maps with labels, which make it easy to identify countries, cities and other locations. Some allow the use of dry-erase markers for making notations.
