Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How can you make a map out of clay? What is a compass rose? How do scientists track hurricanes? How has the world’s population changed? Now you can discover the answers to these and other fascinating questions about geography. In Geography for Every Kid you’ll learn about legends, scales, grip maps, topographic maps, latitude and longitude, and much more! You’ll create a map of your very own neighborhood park, make an enlarged picture using a grid, and even map a simulated ocean floor using just a string and a washer. Each of the activities is broken down into its purpose, a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, expected results, and an easy to understand explanation. Every activity has been pretested and can be performed safely and inexpensively in the classroom or at home. Also available in this series from Janice VanCleave: Astronomy for Every Kid Biology for Every Kid Chemistry for Every Kid Dinosaurs for Every Kid Earth Science for Every Kid Geometry for Every Kid The Human Body for Every Kid Math for Every Kid Physics for Every Kid
