History Maps of the World

History Maps of the World

This App is a great resource to learn about the different countries. The application proves useful for more than just history teachers, as students must nurture the ability to place works of art, music, literature, philosophy, politics, and other disciplines into their proper historical or geographic contexts. It also is a wonderful teacher’s aid, History: Maps of the World compiles cartography from different eras, allowing viewers to watch as boundaries change and tectonic plates shift. Some maps even group nations together by theme rather than geography as well.


This App can be used in my unit as students look at maps to locate their countries while learning about their identity. They will also be able to apply historical and geographic skills to bring meaning to issues and events through the use of these maps.


I would rate this app to be "superior" as it has great subject matter that relates to many subject areas and main ideas - maps are clearly identified and defined. This app is also easy to navigate and students can zoom in and out to see the World in a whole different way.
