Using exciting footage of Washington, D.C., interviews with cartographers and a touch of levity, Map Skills for Children explores the many types and uses of maps, the differences between maps and globes and the history of cartography. Join April and Jody as they discover the necessity of using maps to help them learn about and navigate their way around the National Mall. Learn about cardinal and intermediate directions, along with personal directions and relative locations. April and Jody also create their own map, making sure that it is usable by including all of the elements of maps. Emphasizing the practical everyday use of maps, Map Skills for Children not only instructs students in the skills of map reading and map making, but also explores the evolution of maps and the science of cartography. Teacher's Guides are included and available online.

Only available in the US.
