The Ideal Maps for Teaching World History
The ideal maps for teaching world history are maps that reflect the political boundaries of each historical period. Map Trek World Complete Collection CD provides a collection of historical maps in chronological sequence, to make your history curriculum even better.
Follow Chronological Progression of History
Since common blackline maps (or outline maps, as they are more commonly referred to) are nearly always drawn with current political boundary lines, they can be frustrating to use. But the maps on Map Trek World Complete Collection CD, newly revised and updated in 2010, follow a chronological progression of history and are broken down into four major time periods:
The Ancients (5000 B.C.-400 A.D.)
The Middle Ages (400 A.D.-1600 A.D.)
The New World (1600 A.D.-1850 A.D.) and
The Modern World (1850 A.D.- Present Time Period)

Print What You Need for Your Family
Map Trek World Complete Collection CD provides more than 350 maps including full color teacher maps and slightly shaded student maps. Because Map Trek is on a CD, you can print only the maps you need, in the quantities that are appropriate for your family. Also includes lesson plans for grades 1-12 with three levels of difficulty for studying each map and the associated time period.
Gives Students an Edge in Learning
Using historical outline maps reinforces historical and geographical facts for students and gives them an edge in their learning. With hundreds of maps in PDF format, this CD is both Windows and Mac compatible.
Unlike Uncle Josh's Outline Maps, Map Trek World Complete Collection CD does NOT put as much emphasis on current maps. Much of the focus here is on the historical maps. They do include a smattering of current maps - but not what I would consider to be a complete collection. Also, the publisher has made corrections to several of the maps which can be found here: Map Corrections Page
