Are you hitting the road this summer? You can turn this trip into a life long lesson in map reading skills. Many cars are manufactured with gps or a navigation system. This can be turned off and your child can be the navigator.
First, purchase an map at local gas stations. Next, as a family, plan your trip. Discuss how far you plan to travel in a day. Make sure to incorporate skills such as distance and landmarks. You can then check your answer online or with your cars navigation system. Lastly, have fun!
