1. Why Cartography? So What?
Maps are composed of exactly what children starting school is going to learn about:
Words and Letters, Numbers, Colours, Shapes, Patterns and Places.
I have made it Simple and Stress-Free for you!
Starting at the Earliest school entrants X Marks the Spot is a fantastic introduction to maps and the World! On to KS2 where cARTography and Cartography for STEAM can be introduced into Any topic!

2. How can Captain Alice help my school?
Captain Alice the Cartographer has created a bespoke set of Map Skills, Cartographic and STEAM-related resources, already made and cartographically correct and up to date to the UK Curriculum specification.
You do not have to waste time searching endlessly to find an outline or a bunch of cities or rivers.. it has been done for you!
I enjoy teaching children about maps - getting their brains whirring - and their energy focused on creating something bespoke and new to them!
Something they can talk about with their friends and family in the future.
