Fun with Map Skills

A great series of books covering cartography and mapping skills, with a bit of geography, natural sciences and adventure thrown in, too. Students learn and practice in these books. There are "Did you Know" sections, statistics and information. Mapping skills are practiced in the context of actual application: tracking animals and natural disasters, locating important landmarks, GPS, etc. Students also learn how mapping skills are used in various applications, including sports and the military. Not workbooks per se (not designed to be written in), but every page has something to do. Activities get your students moving: use a compass, use string to measure, etc. Very creative! Periodically, there is also a "Try Your Skills" section (cleverly disguised word problems) which challenges your students. Lots of vocabulary here, too; these are bolded in the text and also found in the glossary and index. Full-color photos, graphs and charts make for an exciting adventure. I can see all of these in this series used together to supplement a wonderful late elementary geography course. 8 1/4" x 11", 32 pp, sc. ~ Ruth
