All About 'The Mapmaker and the Ghost' Teaching Guide!

This post is especially dedicated to teachers, librarians and the people who know and love them!

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.)
The guide is broken up into subjects, with activities, discussion questions and suggested further reading in the following categories:

  • Mapmaking/Math 
  • 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!
