本文嘗試將國小社會教科書上所呈現的地圖與世界觀教育做結合，來探討地圖教材如何能達成世界觀教育的目標，以提供世界觀教育另一種不同的課程設計途徑，供教科書編製者及教師之參考。而本文所指稱的世界觀教育，其範圍是以臺灣為出發點再擴及世界的領域，以此檢視社會教科書如何透過地圖教材，將世界觀教育的相關內涵表現出來，培養學生在相互依賴日增的全球時代中所必須具備的世界觀。 This study combined global education with the maps in the social studies textbooks for grade 4-6, and examined the function of the map materials for attaining the objectives of global education.
