Helping Children Learn the Art of Mapping
Maps and Mapping for Canadian Kids is a really great resource to use when introducing your children to what maps are, and how to create one. It shows them how maps are made, how they work and teaches them how to read maps including basic principles of navigation and how early explorers were able to chart the world, and Canada in particular. It also includes a special section about explorer David Thompson highlighting some of his achievements as a great Canadian cartographer.
