Did you know that most kids learn from a world map that doesn't show the correct sizes of the continents? The map most of us learn about in school is called the Mercator Map.

The Mercator Map shows the correct SHAPE of the 7 continents, but it doesn't show the correct SIZE of the continents. In fact, the Mercator Map makes the entire African continent look smaller than Greenland, when in reality, Africa is about 14.5 times larger!

The map that Wally likes to teach is called the Gall-Peters Projection Map. Unlike the Mercator Map, the Gall-Peters Projection Map shows the correct SIZE of the continents but doesn't show the correct SHAPE.

For a long time, places like North America and Europe have appeared much larger than they actually are!


Wally wants to teach children about the Gall-Peters Projection Map so that we can learn a new perspective, and learn about another way to see the world! Add Wally's World Map to your classroom, playroom, or children's Around the World-themed room to encourage learning about the world!
