Zoom in on Climate Maps
Readers will learn about different types of climate maps, such as precipitation maps and temperature maps. They will examine a map of the different climate zones around the world and how they affect the regions. They will even discover some practical reasons that people use climate maps. A follow-up activity allows readers to examine a climate zone map and use it to prepare for an imaginary trip around the world.
With simple text and lots of pictures and illustrations, children will learn all about the different types of maps and their functions. Each book begins with a short intro on the different aspects of a map (such as the compass rose, legend, and scale) and then ventures on to talk about the specifics of each type of map. An activity is included at the end. Approximately 7" x 8.5". 24 pgs, pb. -Emily G
