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 kids can discover the answers to these and other fascinating questions about geography. Packed with illustrations, Geography for Every Kid uses simple problems and activities to teach kids ages 8 through 12 about legends, scales, grid maps, topographic maps, latitude and longitude, and much more! Kids will learn about geography the fun way by creating a map of their very own neighborhood park, making an enlarged picture using a grid, and even mapping 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 explanation that kids can understand. Every project has been pretested and can be performed safely and inexpensively in the classroom or at home. When learning science means doing science, learning becomes an adventure!
