Are we there yet???
Summertime is a time for traveling and vacations.
In our fast-paced, technology-infused lives, we depend on many things to help us get from point A to point B.
Most of us can quickly go online to Google maps and look up directions from our home to anywhere we want to drive. Many of us also own GPS devices in which we can type in an address of where we want to go and the device will tell us, step by step, how to reach our destination.
But what about maps? You know, those paper things that have a compass, legend, and longitude and latitude lines? Can you get somewhere by only using a map and NO technology?
Today's post is part one of a few posts about the concepts of maps and the parts of a map.
There are four main directions on a map: North, South, East & West. That is exactly what this song is about!
Stay tuned for more songs about maps and have a great week!
