Cartography for Kids
Chances are your kindergartener knows every nook and cranny in your house, but what about her knowledge of the world outside? Expand her geographic awareness with these fun and easy map lessons. Looking at a map for streets and natural landmarks will give her a bird's eye view of the world she lives in, and by making a map of her own, she'll get to know the geography of her own personal world. Here's how to start grooming your little cartographer for greatness.
It’s one thing to learn where everything is at home. After all, it’s a place your child spends a great deal of time. It’s another thing altogether to learn where everything is in your neighborhood. Help your child learn her home turf a little better and begin to understand how the world she lives in can be depicted in a two-dimensional map.
