Description

How to Go Anywhere (and Not Get Lost)

With lively full-colour illustrations and full-colour photos throughout, How to Go Anywhere (and Not Get Lost) combines fascinating history with fun hands-on activities that bring critical science, geography, and astronomy concepts to life.

Readers will discover explorers and the tools they developed through the ages: from the ancient Polynesians who crafted stick charts to learn swell patterns in the water to navigate precise paths through the ocean; to Age of Discovery navigators who used compasses and maps to reach the New World; to the modern-day pilots who wield radar and GPS to soar across continents. Kids will also learn skills like taking their bearings with a compass; finding their way with dead reckoning; and locating their own latitude and longitude.

And best of all: 17 activities – making their own sextant, compass, stick chart, chip log, and more – will turn all young adventurers into young navigators.
