Burbank Big Map Night

Burbank students traveled across North America during Big Map night on May 21.  Parents and students were invited onto a map the size of a basketball court through the National Geographic Giant Traveling Maps program.

Brought to Burbank by the PTA and the Foundation for Belmont Education, the floor maps promote geography and map reading skills.  Parents were able to download questions to their smart phones or tablets, which acted as a kind of scavenger hunt by asking geographical questions to answer during their explorations.

Here are some photos of the event and the explorers.
