Does Your Family Use Road Maps in the Car?
Diane Flynn Keith, author of Carschooling writes:
I am working on a new edition of my book, Carschooling and updating some of the resources. It’s been fairly smooth going but I just got to Chapter 7 on Geography and am stumped. Here’s why…
In 2002, when the book was originally published, people used road maps in the car – not Google Maps, Mapquest, and GPS devices.
There are a number of learning activities in the book that rely on the use of a road map to help kids learn to navigate as well as learn some geography.
Here are my questions:
- Do any of you with children ages 4-17 still use road maps in the car? Would you appreciate ideas that call for using road maps to help kids learn?
- If not, do you use any of the modern technological wonders to help your kids learn navigation and geography? If so, how?
- If you share an activity that uses modern technology here, be sure to include your name as you would like credit in the book. Anyone, whose idea is included, will receive a free copy of the next edition of Carschooling.
Thanks in advance for your help!
