When I started our 1st year homeschooling the fall of 2009 I had trouble finding maps to go with our studies. I wanted maps that had certain periods of history or focus in on certain smaller areas from biblical history. Wondermaps from Bright Ideas Press has taken that stress and made it disappear for good!
Wondermaps is a clickable linked PDF document that enables you to turn on or off map labels with the click of a mouse. No more searching for that perfect map of Europe with only country names or maps from WWI. It’s all there, over 350 maps at your fingertips.
There are four menus to choose from The World, The U.S.A., Historical, and Thematic. Each menu has it’s own index which is organized alphabetically for the World and U.S. maps and chronologically for the Historical and Thematic maps. If you use any Bright Ideas Press curriculum for history they have the maps for their Mystery of History and American History programs also.
I love this product and am so happy to have found it. It truly is a blessing in our homeschool for me to not have to search forever and still not find the exact map I need. You can make your maps as basic or advanced as you like so the fact that it can be used with multiple grades is a big plus for me. This has saved me so much time and aggravation.
Here is a video tutorial so you can see just how you might use it.
