Example: hen her
Sing Old Mark Farmer

Labels, captions, cutaways, photos, maps, diagrams, comparisons, types of print, close-ups, table of contents, index, and glossary.

A map is a flat drawing of a place or part of the world.
Maps help us find our way from one place to another.
A map shows where things or places are located.
Maps can be used to show how far one place is from another.
Compass rose: Shows the directions
Legand: (Key) tells you what the symbols on the map mean.

Hands are still.
Feet are quiet.
