Mapping My Town (Learn About: Mapping) (Paperback)
A perfect first introduction to maps and map skills for young readers!
Families can live in all kinds of towns. From urban and suburban, to rural communities, towns can look different but still have a lot in common. Learn how to use map features like a key, compass rose, and a scale to answer questions about direction, measurement, and symbols. Look at photos of different types of towns and use the maps inside the book to navigate and compare what is the same and what is different about living in a city, suburb, or farming community. At the end, you will be ready to draw a map of your own town. All this and more in Mapping My Town!
