Published: Tuesday, April 16, 2013 11:25 p.m. CST

Students at Lincoln Elementary School in Sterling, along with parents and members of the community, use a National Geographic giant map of Asia Tuesday evening in the school's gymnasium to learn about the continent. Lincoln teacher Mrs. Hubbard will use the map as a geography teaching aid for a few days. The Illinois Geography Alliance helps cover the cost of bringing the map to the school.
