Zoom in on Satellite and Street Maps
This visual and instructive look at satellite maps and street maps helps readers understand the symbols, road markings, and land features of these types of maps. Concentration on a smaller area helps readers really study them carefully. A follow-up activity encourages readers to draw their own street map of their town or neighborhood.
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
