    This workbook is divided into two sections: the first contains the activities for learning and practicing mapping skills and the second contains outline maps of the entire world. The activity section starts off pretty simply – what is a map, map types, directional indicators, compass rose, map symbols, globes, hemispheres, and coordinates – and moves on to more advanced concepts as students move through the book – reading maps, labeling maps, locating places on a map, and longitude and latitude. The activity pages are all consumable (and reproducible for family/classroom use), and include a lot of fill-in-the-blanks and map reading/drawing exercises. There are 59 pages of outline maps included in the book – working around the globe in the form of continents, continental regions, and countries. Some of these maps are labeled, or numbered, but most are blank – and many also include directions for completing activities to test geographical knowledge. All of the answers are included in the back of the workbook.
