Abstract


In this study, the impact of the Map and Globe Use Training Program on the map and globe reading and interpretation skills of five-year-olds continuing to a preschool program was examined. A semi-experimental model with a pre-test/post-test control group was used to assess the impact of a 10-week map and globe use-training program in the preschools of three educational institutions in Turkey. In addition to the daily life experiences of the children selected for the experimental group in the study, the researchers applied the Education Program on the Use of Map and Globe, while the children in the control group continued to be given regular daily education programs by their teachers. The data were collected using the “Map and Globe Reading and Interpretation Skills Assessment Test for Children Aged Five.” As a result of the study, a statistically significant difference at the level of 0.05 was observed between the mean scores of the experimental and control group members’ map and globe reading and interpretation skills. The result reveals that the applied program is effective and permanent in providing children with map and globe reading and interpretation skills.
