Explore Africa in Indianapolis
The Nationalities Council of Indiana is partnering with the Geography Educators' Network of Indiana to present the National Geographic Society's Giant Traveling Map of Africa at this year's International Festival. Measuring 26'x35' and weighing 102 pounds, this giant map of Africa is the world's largest map of the continent. The giant map is designed as a geo-game board to introduce students to the power of map and the diverse geography of Africa -- and you can see it at this year's festival, held 20-22 November 2009 in the West Pavilion of the Indiana State Fairgrounds, 1201 East 38th Street, Indianapolis. All the information you need is here.
