Map Skills

We have been working on map skills. We watched a Discovery Streaming video on maps and drew a map of our classroom. For homework, we drew maps of our bedrooms. We worked together to make a floor map of our school. We learned about how to make a map, what maps are for, and about map symbols. We also made cookie maps- the green is the land, the blue is the water, and the small candies are the buildings.

We used our new screen and projector to watch a Discovery Streaming video about maps and models.

We learned what models were and then we all went and found models in our classroom.
