GeoStories are short, map-based stories featured on National Geographic Education. The stories combine text, maps, and pictures to tell a story as a series of slides connected to placemarks on maps. National Geographic Education currently offers twenty-three GeoStories. The current GeoStories cover subjects in the areas of politics, ecology, music, and exploration.

Applications for Education
Even if there isn’t a GeoStory that fits with what you’re teaching at the moment, the stories do offer a good model of using maps to enhance the telling of a story.
