Maps, charts, graphs and diagrams pervade our daily lives. Whether you're surfing the internet, watching the news, or taking a trip, there's no question that it helps to have information literacy. This series helps kids develop a basic understanding of graphically represented informational concepts. Each book has large, readable type and appealing color photos and graphics. Topics are presented in short digestible paragraphs along with relevant real world examples. (For example, in Understanding Charts & Graphs, the chapter on tables has images of airport departure schedules, the periodic table, and March Madness sports brackets.). Important vocabulary words appear in bold and are keyed to an index in the back. Each book has several hands-on "Try It!" activities which let students apply what they've learned to fun projects (ie. create a flowchart for baking cookies, graph the local weather for a week, etc.). An index, glossary, and list of resources are included in the back. 48 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa
