There is a lot of information to be found in a map, almost overwhelmingly so. With the proliferation of digital maps (and their apps), the art of cartography is diminishing somewhat, but knowing how to read a map is still essential for street smarts (ha ha).
When asked to explain the process of understanding maps and all that they offer for Kids Discover magazine, I set upon myself to map out something that defied organization and discipline for many years–my room as a child. Literally, you would have needed a map to find your way around. Look for the little puns in here as well. Enjoy! (Click the map for a larger image.)
