Giant map helps students learn about Asia


ROTHSCHILD (WAOW) - The world's largest and most populated continent.. comes to a Rothschild elementary school in a big way.

A map of Asia is rolled out and covers a good portion of the gym floor at Saint Mark's.

It measures 26' x35'.  Students get to interact with it.

They learned about the continent's population density.. by having students stand near certain areas.

Signe Fronek/St. Mark's 5th Grader: "It's easier to see how big and how many people could actually live there."

5th grade teacher Mary Wagner set the wheels in motion for the map's visit.

It was supplied by the Wisconsin Geographic Alliance and designed to introduce students to the diverse geography of Asia.
