This book introduces students from middle years to map skills. Each page invites the learner to try high interest, appealing exercises that will help students with a new skill, reinforce an existing skill or assess a student's performance or understanding. This is no ordinary fill-in-the-blanks way to learn. These exercises are fun and surprising. Students will join the hunt for a bank robber, help a lost miner find water in the desert, crack a worldwide Internet spy network and look for lost ruins.
