At one of our regular Saturday schools sessions, a group of 20 students will use stencils to paint a large color map of the World onto our school playground. This permanent map will be used by students and teachers on a daily basis for years to come. As a Social Studies teacher at this charter school in San Franscisco\'s Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood, one of my major goals is to give students an understanding of geography. Considering that only 40% of our incoming fifth graders know the name and location of the state of California, this is no easy task. These maps will allow students to learn geography in a \"hands-on\" (or should I say, \"feet-on\") way. The maps will be used by teachers in regular geography lessons as well as by students in their play every day.
