This book of maps is a visual feast for readers of all ages, with lavishly drawn illustrations from the incomparable Mizielinskis.
It features not only borders, cities, rivers, and peaks, but also places of historical and cultural interest, eminent personalities, iconic animals and plants, cultural events, and many more fascinating facts associated with every region of our planet.
Easy-to-read text, bright artwork, and charming details give children a lot to search for and will have them eager to help navigate on the next family vacation.
In this playful introduction to maps and geography, step by simple step, a young girl shows readers herself on a map of her room, her room on the map of her house, her house on the map of her street — all the way to her country on a map of the world.
Once the reader is familiar with the maps, she demonstrates how readers can find their own country, state, and town — all the way back to their room — on each colorful map.
As with all things Montessori, students begin with the concrete and move to the abstract.
When learning geography, students first develop an understanding that the earth is a round globe, made up of land and water.
They then manipulate the shape of each continent before addressing its name and location.Montessori: Map Work introduces readers to the seven continents via textured edges to trace with their fingers, modes of transportation between each one for spatial context, and illustrated native animals for relevant and meaningful associations.
Young children will absorb the age-appropriate geography and gain a better sense of their place in the world.
The Cat in the Hat introduces beginning readers to maps–the different kinds (city, state, world, topographic, temperature, terrain, etc.).
Readers also learn their formats (flat, globe, atlas, puzzle); the tools we use to read them (symbols, scales, grids, compasses); and funny facts about the places they show us (“Michigan looks like a scarf and a mitten! Louisiana looks like a chair you can sit in!”).
