A blank map of the world for multiple uses. Oxfam uses Peters Projection for all of its maps of the world. If desired, teachers and students are welcome to undertake a webquest and discuss why we may use this map.

- Why did Peters create his map?
- What countries are bigger, and what countries are smaller?
