Using a Map
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     You and your family are going on a vacation to New York City. You have a list of places you want to visit. You want to go to the zoo in Central Park. You want to see the Statue of Liberty. You want to see Times Square. How will you get there? You need a map.
 
2     A map gives information about a place. It shows details like roads, rivers, or mountains. Maps are tools. They help us find places.
 
3     There are different kinds of maps. Some maps show roads. Some show famous buildings or monuments like the Statue of Liberty. Some show mountains and valleys. Some show different countries and their borders. Some show the whole Earth, its continents and oceans.
