By Richard Panchyk
Richly illustrated with full-color maps and diagrams, children are introduced to cartography through hands-on activities. With a detailed introduction from its earliest beginnings in Ancient Greece to the present— to an in-depth discussion on how technology has impacted our understanding of the world, students are immersed into the study of mapmaking and geography. Through the activities (21 of them!) students can appreciate the pursuits of those explorers and inventors that changed history.
