This group of interactive whiteboard resources utilises a number of maps that have passed into the public domain due to their age.
When the map appears there is a green box in the top left. Drag this to the point on the map that you wish to zoom into. Once zoomed in you can drag the map around. You can place map pins by selecting the appropriate colour and then clicking where you would like to position it. Clicking on a placed map pin removes it. Clicking the hand icon lets you go back to scrolling the map. Clicking unzoom does what you would expect.
Some of the maps are more useful for a historic perspective than a geographic one. The European one, for example, shows the political boundaries of just before World War One. The Africa map shows the dominance of the colonial powers at the time. The USA map was historical at the time of its creation so should still be useful for explaining the development of the USA’s boundaries. Canada and Australia are also shown as they were in 1910.

An interactive whiteboard resource to show an easily manipulated map of the world. Drag the map around the screen to show different parts of the world. The map has physics implemented so it can quickly be scrolled from one part to another with a flick of the finger on the whiteboard – tap again to stop the scroll. Mark points of interest using the 3 different coloured map pins.
The map can be dragged when the hand icon is selected. Pins are inserted when one of the pin icons is selected. Pins are removed by clicking on them.
The map includes more detailed sections of the world along the bottom.

Use this teaching resource to create maps quickly and easily for your own purpose. The maps can be printed to hand out to students. The maps can be saved to your computer and re-loaded to use to demonstrate points on the interactive whiteboard. An on screen ruler can be toggled on or off.
The traditional map has self orienting roads for speed and ease of use. It has 4 figure grid references.
There are two versions of the treasure map. The first uses 4 figure grid references. The second uses letters and numbers for grid references.
A set of printable resources to accompany this interactive whiteboard resource can also be downloaded and contain a printable grid and cut out and stick map symbols to match the resources.
The resources are very recently completed so if any bugs or errors are found please let me know. Similarly if you have any suggestions to make them more useful please comment.
