Full of hands-on activities to help you learn all about map skills whilst also learning about the features of a village.

This book will show you what a bird's eye map is by looking at aerial photos of villages; how village landmarks, such as churches and village greens can be shown as symbols; how to measure scale and distance on a walk around a village; what map plans are using a village shop and a farmers' market, as examples; how compass points show you how to find directions around a stable yard; how to follow pathways, roads and bridleways on a country walk; how to use grid references by looking at a village green; what contour lines are by looking at a country valley; looking at landuse by showing farming land; and looking at transport maps showing routes between different villages. Illustrations by Sarah Horne in an amusing and lively style are combined with photographs to really capture a child's attention helping them to learn these important map skills.
