Most people use maps every day. But imagine a time when a map of a place didn't exist. Without a map, how would you get there? How would you know how to get around? Navigate through history as you learn the art, science, history, and importance of making maps. Created in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution, this STEAM book will ignite a curiosity about STEAM topics through real-world examples. It features a hands-on STEAM challenge that is perfect for makerspaces and that guides students step-by-step through the engineering design process. Make STEAM career connections with career advice from Smithsonian employees working in STEAM fields. Ideal for school reports and projects, this informational text will appeal to reluctant readers and ages 6-8.
