Did you know that The Mapmaker and the Ghost has themes and subject matter that could make it a fun and informative classroom read? Lewis & Clark, mapmaking and even science play pivotal roles in the plot.
As such, the book also has a companion teaching guide which you can preview below (you can also download the pdf here). (Warning: there might be a few mild spoilers if you haven't read the book yet.)
- Social Studies (Lewis and Clark)
- Science (Tesla and Alternative Energy)
- Language Arts
- Art/Just for Fun
If you are considering using The Mapmaker and the Ghost in the classroom, I hope you find it useful! And if you do end up using the guide, I'd love to know how it goes!
