Some Columbia school kids are getting some hands-on experience with South America without leaving their classroom.
Geographers from the University of South Carolina are at Brennan Elementary School on Friday.
They're bringing with them a 25-foot-by-35-foot map provided by National Geographic.
The giant map covers the floor in the school's gymnasium. The director of USC's South Carolina Geographic Alliance is working with teachers to help students in every grade level learn from the map.
