9780064467384: Treasure Map (MathStart 3)

Matthew has found a treasure map, and soon the Elm Street Kids' Club is off on a quest. The map guides them into a wonderful, magical world, but it's the real-life math skills of understanding distance, scale, direction, and symbols that will help Matthew, Sheri, Meg, Danny, and Jed -- with some assistance from Petey the parrot -- find a treasure hidden fifty years ago.

From Booklist:

Gr. 2-3, younger for reading aloud. This entry in the MathStart series takes on beginning map-reading skills. When one of the members of the Elm Street Kids Clubfinds a treasure map, all the kids join in the fun to search for the treasure. Several math-related concepts, such as problem solving and estimation, are modeled as the kids look at the 50-year-old map and, following directions such as "turn left," try to make it fit a present-day landscape. The mapping concepts are not presented as effectively as they could have been (the map shows a compass rose and a legend, though these terms are never mentioned in the text), but there's a lot here for adults to build on. Tusa's watercolor-and-ink cartoon-style illustrations, while nicely done, divert from the main story line with an unexplained fantasy sideshow that may confuse some children. Companion activities and a short bibliography are included. Lauren Peterson
