This workbook uses black-and-white reproducible pages to introduce students to key geography skills in using maps and globes. Students are shown the basic elements of maps; how they are developed; the use of directions, grids, scales, and legends; and the different types of maps.
Key elements of globes such as latitude, longitude, time zones, climate areas, and cities are covered. Each continent of the globe is studied briefly to help students learn skills in context. The last section of the workbook incorporates these skills in creative critical thinking exercises. Answers are included in the back of the book.
