Students and the community can soon depart on the ultimate international field trip—no passports needed—with the arrival of one of the world’s largest maps of Europe on February 23, 2017. The Mississippi Geographic Alliance at the University of Mississippi is bringing the National Geographic Traveling Map of Europe to Mississippi for a statewide tour. Oxford Elementary School (OES) was chosen as one of 10 statewide host sites. The floor map, measuring 26 feet by 26 feet, will enable students to embark on an interactive tour of the world’s second smallest continent, while learning about its rich history and diverse geography. Designed for grades K-8, the map will be at OES on February 23 and February 24 through National Geographic’s Giant Traveling Maps program and the Mississippi Geographic Alliance.
