How to Use Maps as We Study Nevada

Maps can be used to tell us different things. They can teach us about the world by showing the size and shape of countries. They can tell us how to get to a new place. They can also show us the location of land features like the Great Basin in Nevada. Maps can tell us distance or give us directions.
