Debra Moore Subject Guide Maps

  1. 1. Map Resources Debra Moore LIS 704 December 5th, 2013
  2. 2. • My topic that I have chosen for this guide is maps for elementary aged students. I have chosen my current school library at Memorial School. It is a library that serves around 300 students in the building. • My subject guide will be geared towards elementary school teachers. I think these resources are best used to teach the subject matter. Some of the chosen books are above reading level for primary students. Also, there are resources for how to teach maps. Therefore, you will find several atlases, how to use an atlas, a teaching guide, and several non-fiction texts to help children learn about what maps are and how to use them. Resources on maps for school libraries

  4. 4. • Wright, David K., and Jill Wright. The World Almanac Children's Atlas. New York: World Almanac, 2012. Print. • This atlas was reviewed by the School Library Journal. It is a great beginner’s atlas for children just learning how to read maps. It maintains interest with colorful photographs, which is often necessary for primary aged children. This can be found in the 900’s section along with other atlases. The World Almanac Children’s Atlas
  5. 5. • Boyer, Crispin. National Geographic Kids Ultimate U.S. Road Trip Atlas. Washington, D.C.: National Geographic, 2012. Print. • This is another great beginning resource for learning how to read maps. It has added interest because of the fun facts, games, cool things to do, etc. There are simple, easy to read maps included. This can also be found in the 900’s section with other atlases. National Geographic Kids Ultimate U.S. Road Atlas
  6. 6. • Map Essentials: A Comprehensive Map Skills Program : Teacher's Guide, Grade 1. Washington, D.C.: National Geographic School Pub., 2001. Print. • This is a great resource for learning how to teach students about reading maps. It includes lesson plans, extension activities, assessment masters, internet links, etc. I think this would be a great starting place to see sample lessons and also find other resources. Even though it has an earlier publication date, the lesson plans and activities are relevant to today. This resource can be found in the professional development section of the library.

  8. 8. • Matteson, Adrienne. Find Your Way with Atlases. Ann Arbor, MI: Cherry Lake Pub., 2012. Print. • This resource would be necessary to begin a more indepth look at atlases. This book explains what an atlas is and how to use it. It helps to explain the layouts, keys, table of contents, and the index. Because of it’s brightly illustrated cover, students may be more inclined to check out this informative book. This can be found in the 900’s section with other atlases. Find Your Way With Atlases
  9. 9. • Ritchie, Scot. Follow That Map!: A First Book of Mapping Skills. 2009. Print. • This book was reviewed by School Library Journal and Booklist. In this book, the author uses a fictional story to help introduce maps. Two kids are searching for their missing cat and dog. During their search, the readers can look at maps of the search to identify different places. This book is similar to Mapping Penny’s World, but is published more recently. This resource can be found in the geography section 900. Follow That Map!: A First Book of Mapping Skills
  10. 10. • Quinlan, Julia J. Different Kinds of Maps. New York: PowerKids, 2012. Print. • This would be a good resource to use when students are starting to have an understanding of how to use maps. Children are introduced to the different types of maps they might encounter. This can be helpful to have an understanding of what type of map they might need for different situations. The clear photographs and nonfiction text features help to make this book easy to navigate. This resource can be found in the geography section 900. Different Kinds of Maps
  11. 11. • Keller, Laurie. The Scrambled States of America. New York: Square Fish, 2012. Sound Recording. • In this fictional story, children are given a look into the United States. With several maps of the United States, students become more acquainted with seeing a map of the states. They are also entertained with a silly storyline. Since it is an audiobook, it is perfect for early readers. This can be found with other children’s audiobooks in the CD section. The Scrambled States of America (Sound Recording)
  12. 12. • Sandvold, Rolf. Reading Maps. New York, NY: Crabtree Pub., 2009. Print. • This book is a basic overview of maps. Children can learn about why maps are needed, different kinds of maps, symbols, legends, directions, etc. With many illustrations and examples, students will be able to use the visuals to follow along. This resource can be found in the geography section 900. Reading Maps
  13. 13. • Quinlan, Julia J. Keys, Legends, and Symbols in Maps. New York: PowerKids, 2012. Print. • Once students are more familiar with what maps are for, they can then take a more in-depth look at keys, legends, and symbols. This book explains what keys, legends, and symbols are and how they are used on different maps. This book can be used along with Different Kinds of Maps as it is the same series. This can be found in the geography section 900. Keys, Legends, and Symbols in Maps
  14. 14. • Somervill, Barbara A. The Story behind Maps. 2012. Print. • This resource provides a little history and background of maps from the first map to how maps are used with technology today. Students can gain an understanding of why maps were created, and how they have evolved. This resource is a great way to get the interest of students who are intrigued by the historical factor. This can be found in the geography section 900. The Story Behind Maps
  15. 15. • Greve, Meg. Keys and Symbols on Maps. Vero Beach, FL: Rourke Pub., 2010. Print. • This book would be great for a primary aged student. It is geared towards young readers with simple texts and lots of illustrations. The book shows basic symbols such as a knife and fork for a restaurant. I especially like that it is geared towards young students. This can be found in the geography section 900. Keys and Symbols on Maps
