Map Fight is an online website that has the ability to be used across the curriculum from math to social studies, all around the world! This tool allows students to compare the size of different countries to help them understand the concepts of different geographical size in both the math and geographical comprehension. You can use this website for students to make the connections between math and geography, understanding how to compare sizes of countries and the importance of the size difference between countries.
In Math, students can use the size percentage difference to translate the numbers to fractions. In Social Studies, teachers can facilitate the learning of the importance of size differences and their historical significance. If you think of any other way to use this site, please share!
_Hi, my name is Melanie Lewis. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Amherst County Public Schools,
located in the beautiful state of Virginia. I LOVE my job! I get to
work on my hobby, anything that has to do with computers. I get to work
with teachers and students, and I am definitely a people person. Plus,
I DO NOT have to give grades. Wonderful, huh? Let me know how I can help you better integrate technology into your classroom.
