Gr 3-7–Humans have been navigating the globe for millennia. Long before GPS came into being, people used the landscape, the ocean, the sun, moon, and stars to find their way from place to place. This book begins with a brief history of navigation and the basic principles upon which it is based. Topics include identifying direction using trees and plants, navigation using the stars, and modern tools that help people find their way (satellites, radar, and GPS). Seventeen activities encourage readers to get up and experience the principles and skills described in the text. Each activity lists supplies needed and step-by-step instructions for completing the project. The illustrations feature sketches, photographs, old portraits, maps, and colorful diagrams.
VERDICT A nice addition to school collections where geography and human movement are studied.
