204 Illustrated map of Florida, c. 1950's

  • 3125


Maps for kids have been around for as long as teachers have tried to bring history to life. They are often times full of whimsy. For instance, an old antique map might employ rich colors and drawings of native peoples and topography to make the map pop. More modern versions showcase cartoonish images that are as exaggerated as they are animated. 
Though native peoples and explorers of yore are absent from this map of the state of Florida, there is certainly much to talk about and discuss with your young one. Give a lesson in military history by pointing out the naval base near Tallahassee. Have a talk about the agricultural backbone of Florida's economy by delving in to sugar cane and tobacco. 
Of course, you have to discuss both the Gulf beaches and Atlantic coastline areas. All of the sand, sun and fun happens every day, year round. It is what Florida is known for. Though she has her areas of history like St. Augustine and the Keys, much of the current economy is supported by tourism, whether it is a theme park, botanical gardens or carefree beach condos and resorts. Don't forget the fishing though. Florida has some of the best sailfish and tarpon fishing to be found in the world. Your kids can imagine being a fish that gets caught unaware, or if they are older, hanging out with their friends on a deep sea fishing trip. 
No matter what your child likes, you will have plenty to look at and discuss with your little one as you visually explore the state of Florida. Maps for kids have been around for as long as teachers have tried to bring history to life. They are often times full of whimsy. For instance, an old antique map might employ rich colors and drawings of native peoples and topography to make the map pop. More modern versions showcase cartoonish images that are as exaggerated as they are animated. Our Florida state map fits the bill nicely and would make the perfect gift to be treasured and handed down for years to come.
