Map Game for Summer Road Trips

Map Game for Summer Road Trips

The United States map shown, “On the Quest for Heroes,” was used for an activity during “Heroes Week” of the Ball State University Cardinal Kids Camp. Heroes are hidden all over the map—and not just superheroes like Batman and Superman. Police and firemen, astronauts, teachers, and even mom, dad, and grandparents are represented on the map of the United States.

Click on the image above to print off a copy to keep young travelers occupied (and learning U.S. geography) on those long summer road trips. Just circle the heroes and name the states in which they are located.

For more information about this map or other map travel games, please contact the Geospatial Resources & Map Collection on the second floor of Bracken Library at 765/285-1097.
