Students get new look at Asian continent in Hattiesburg Library

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Some students at Hattiesburg schools are walking across Asia, but their trip is only taking a few minutes.

Thanks to the National Geographic Society and the Mississippi Geographic Alliance, children all across the Hub City are seeing cities like Beijing, Tokyo and Bangkok in a whole new way, because of a giant floor map that's on temporary display at the Hattiesburg Library.

 It measures 36 by 24 feet, and children are able to walk on it.

The map will be in Hattiesburg through the weekend. It will be displayed at several locations throughout the state in the coming weeks.
