TeacherLED is a website that provides interactive whiteboard resources for educators.
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
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.
