Get kids excited about discovering the world
ULTIMATE MAPPING GUIDE FOR KIDS
By Justin Miles. Do geography, don't just read about it. Plan an adventure, go on a hike, and get kids excited about discovering the world. Clear explanations of map skills and tips for how to safely navigate the outdoors (with or without a compass) provide an ideal foundation for budding young geographers. Concepts covered in this lively adventure guide include reading map legends and symbols, understanding scale and grids, giving directions, and using GPS. Those skills are then put to the test in fun activities such as using a bucket of water and a rock to make a contour map, finding north using the sun and a stick in the ground, making a route card for a treasure hunt, and more.
