Maps explain history and tell stories. When people understand the role of agriculture in the context of history and society they are better able to make informed decisions about food and natural resources.
We have prepared lists of useful maps for topics and a collection of lesson plans that integrate the use of maps in teaching to math, science, social studies and language arts standards for 3rd-6th grades. Access these ready-to-use resources under the Teacher Resources tab or by clicking below.
The Interactive Map Project is designed to give students, educators and parents a more interactive and useful way to understand the facts, events, and places that impact our daily lives. Many of the maps are especially useful for 4th grade instruction in Nebraska history.
