What is a map? A map is a drawing that shows the shape of a place and the things that are there. Some maps show a small place, such as a room. Other maps show the whole world. If you know how to read a map, it shows you where places are and helps you find your way.
Just as in the book we just read the best way to understand where things are is to look down on them from a bird’s eye view. A map is a bird’s eye view of a place with symbols to show what things are.
