Map Skills

Which way to the path of enlightenment? Get a head-start in the right direction with Tim and Moby as they teach you about maps and how to read them! In this BrainPOP movie, you’ll learn about a few different kinds of maps, including one that shows both natural features; one that can change as wars are fought and governments alter; and another that might show up in your history textbook. You’ll also discover what all maps have in common, as well as some of the features you can expect to encounter while map-reading. You’ll never have to stop and ask for directions again! (Okay, maybe you might...)
