Where should we vacation if we want to see mountains? Where can we go to be near a big lake? Is there a desert in Kansas? As students read this book, they'll be able to answer these questions and more. They'll learn to interpret a map legend and identify natural features. Comparing physical maps of the same area over time will aid children in identifying changes to the landscape. Readers will apply their knowledge by creating a physical map of a fictional place that they create.
