Here's a truly integrated approach to geography. Each book is in the format of an adventure capturing the imagination of learners and transporting them to a special location where they share in adventures via captivating stories, whimsical characters and beautiful illustrations. M A P S Book 2 unfolds in the mythical Land of Blue Lights with quaint characters such as Manuga, the wise man; Gregor, the fisherman; Helena the weaver; not to mention creatures such as the Fire Beast. Skills include using map legends, distance scales, symbols, rose compass, and comparing maps. Each intriguing story is accompanied by reproducible worksheets that relate to the events of the story and teach and reinforce map-reading skills. Students fall in love with the characters and their adventures and want to learn each new map skill in order to plot their way through the next escapade. This pair of books received the Teachers' Choice Award of Learning Magazine for best new curriculum materials throughout the United States. Each book also includes a full-color poster of the book's location and ideas for additional, hands-on activities. What a wonderful way to stimulate the imagination and create fervor for learning essential map-reading skills.
