What could be more basic about directions than maps? All About Maps is a course for kindergartners through eighth graders that starts with basic map skills, including directions and the compass rose, and advances through a study of latitude and longitude, various types of maps, natural resources, how settlement and war have impacted political maps, natural disasters, and natural hazards. It is comprised of nine units, with each unit increasing in difficulty and grade level. Kindergartners learn to create maps of familiar places and develop a sense of awareness of geographical location. First graders learn about the types of maps, the compass rose, cardinal directions, and continents and countries. As the grades progress, students learn about the equator and hemispheres, street maps, latitude and longitude, Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn, International Date Line, natural resources, Mercator Projection, time zones, how the United States has changed over time, types of settlements, town planning, natural disasters and natural hazards, droughts and floods, tropical cyclones, earthquakes, and so on.
