Map Reading

A map is a drawing that gives us information about the place. For example, a map of a bedroom might show where the bed,, dressing table, cupboards are. A map of a city or a locality shows streets, highways, schools or landmark etc.

Maps are very useful and important to us. They help us to guide us about different places and gives us directions to various places. Different symbols and colors are used to represent important places, like hospital, railway station, school in the map. A map key tells the details about the symbols used in the map.

He takes a right from his home and move forward. Then, he takes a left turn from the first cut and move ahead. Then, he takes aright turn from second cut to reach the park.
