Greetings from the Johnson family!We are a homeschooling family with six children. We love educating our
children at home and have been doing so for about 16 years. We have used various methods and curricula
throughout the years, but have often found that a resource we wished for simply didn’t exist. These holes in the

At the beginning of 2014, we unveiled two new
mapping websites for families that love history and geography - Map Center and Map Studio.
The first one is a site where you can purchase a single map for just 99 cents and the second website allows
you to create your own map. We hope that you enjoy these new resources.
