31 Days of Smart Summer Fun, Day 8: Brain Teaser of the Day

One of our favorite things to do during summer vacation is work on lateral thinking skills. What is lateral thinking? It’s using creative thinking skills to solve a problem. So think of something like a brain teaser or word puzzle. You can’t solve those by using traditional step-by-step logic skills, right? You have to think outside the box to find the right answer. Here’s one to try with your kids…
I have streets but no pavement,
I have cities but no buildings,
I have forests but no trees,
I have rivers yet no water.

What am I?
