Maps for Schools

COMPETITION TIME

Win a personalised wall map for yourself and also for your school.
 
In these difficult times we want to inspire children to research a subject and get creative with the information they find. 
The task we are setting is to create a map of the British Isles locating and illustrating places that are famous for different foods.
To help you get started we can give you free outline maps to work with, you can download a detailed outline here or a more simple one here. If you want to draw your own then that is fine.
There are no rules on the map size and you can paint, colour, cut out pictures and stick on , or create on your computer whatever you like; just get creative. 
There will be winners in three age categories 5-7, 8-11 and 12-16. If you wish to enter as a school rather than as individual entries then please do.
We hope we can do this without you having to send the artwork to us, just email pictures of your map to us with your name, age and school. 
The closing date for entries is 30th April with the winners to be informed about a week later. We will try to show all the entries.
Above everything else have fun and please let it be the children's artwork. 
 
 

At Cosmographics we specially design maps that are aimed at a younger audience.

We have a broad selection of wall maps for all ages, some designed especially for the younger age groups and we highly recommend our colour blind friendly maps for use in education. Colourful, easy to read and informative, our wallmaps are ideal for the classroom, home, school foyer or playground. We also give you the opportunity to turn our maps a special gift or prize, so you can personalise by giving us a title, name or picture to add.

MYTHICAL MONSTERS PREMIUM WORLD MAP

New to our collection. Brilliantly designed by Peter Dobbin the Mythical Monster Map allows you to learn about the world’s astonishing-looking Monsters which are linked to country customs and stories in legends. The Monsters exhibit a variety of characteristics: from the strong but unintelligent Troll of Scandinavia to the benevolent and extremely powerful Azure Dragon of China to the beautiful, magical forest-dwelling woman Madremonte of Colombia. Behaviour varies from Monster to Monster: some are threatening, some are helpful to humans and some have magical powers. The body shape and colours and dynamic poses help to highlight the individual characteristics of each Monster.

On the larger versions of the Monster Map there is a description of each Monster’s country of origin and of their characteristics. Each creature’s description is clearly labelled with a matching silhouette to correspond with the colour illustration on the map. 

Personalised versions of the map are also available, a great gift.
