See the USA - Trip Through the Nifty Fifty
Learn a lot about U.S. geography by taking a trip across the U.S.A. A big, colorful 11" x 17" map accompanies this engaging book, giving students plenty of practice using a map as they "travel" all over the country. Fifty pages of questions and activities have students practice using direction, position, distance, and comparison, analyze information, and draw conclusions. Besides learning basic map skills, your children will learn a great deal about the individual states including locations, abbreviations, nicknames, industry, and more. Even math and reading skills are put to good use as children compute mileage and distance, navigate time zones, and read charts. At the end of the book is a blank map of the U.S. for children to write the names of the states in (after finishing this book, it should be easy), a list of state nicknames and abbreviations, and an answer key.
