Maps & Mapping: Geogra. I absolutely loved the activities in this book for maps and mapping. Maps is an important unit is elementary school and usually all teachers can think to have student do if create their own map from a crumpled brown paper bag. This book included several games and project ideas to make a mapping unit different. The activities ranged from beginner to advanced so K-5 could both utilize this book. There were activities to make your own globe and compass that I really liked.

I've used this book with my grandkids visiting Montana. This is a little stretch for 8 year olds, but can become a game with an adult. Interested older kids will find it doable, especially if you can show them actual topographical maps that you use hiking. A great start to making kids aware of, and users of, maps.

When I purchased this I did not recognize the cover. But lo! It was a book I treasured as a child. I read it over and over again, and am thrilled to share the knowledge and the activities with my own children now. I gave away my old copy a couple decades ago. I will not let this one leave our family.

Great for summertime projects, and they don't need much help from mom. Some of the projects include:

making point-to-point maps
mapping the bedroom and another room in the house
scaling an item larger or smaller
making a map key
making contour lines
using grid references
making a magnetic compassmeasuring angles (simple)
map projections
