Map Books for Children: Intro to Maps Unit Study
Sharing is caring - thank you for spreading the word! My kids and I recently began diving headfirst into our geography lessons. And both kids have really developed their map reading skills thanks in part to some of the books I review below. Well, we went camping this past weekend, and both kids spent a lot of time looking over the campground map. XGirl wanted me to tell her what each item in the key represented so she could then find it on the map. They have just gotten so excited about maps!
