North Carolina Geographic Alliance

About the North Carolina Geographic Alliance

Since 1987, the North Carolina Geographic Alliance has sought to enhance geographic education in North Carolina schools. Over the years the NCGA has produced teaching materials, provided professional development, and advocated for geography as an integral part of the curriculum.


North Carolina Giant Traveling Map -  The National Geographic Society has created a giant map for all 50 states. NCGA teacher consultants are developing materials and lesson plans to accompany the North Carolina Giant Map. A rollout of the map and materials will be at the North Carolina Council for the Social Studies meeting, March 2 and 3, 2017.
