National Geographic has a new Beta site where you can download individual, tabletop size consisting of about 8 pieces, and huge wall maps downloaded in about 136 pieces for the world map. You print these "pieces" as standard paper size from your printer once you download them. You can have the kids work on pieces of the map and tape them together and laminate them or you can piece them together first, laminate, and then use with the kids. I have downloaded a few tabletop versions of several parts of the world for our homeschool geography lessons.
When the mapmaker video shows up you will see some "slides" below the video display. The first slide is the video playing. The second is the first of downloads for that particular size map, which is the "individual" small map. You can scroll sideways using the arrows or use the "Next" and "Prev" buttons with your mouse. If you click directly onto the slide, you can download that part of the map. Towards the end of the slides you can find the "table" map, which is what I downloaded. Also, if you watch the video, it shows how you can download the maps to your computer.
I hope I am clear about this. My family continuously say I am not clear about things, which is why sometimes chores don't get done or schoolwork is delayed. Hmmmm.....
