Map Skills Unfold the Map
Maps have a language of their own, including labels, numbers, colors, symbols, and small pictures. As children make and use maps in this resource, they will discover the usefulness of maps. See Full Product Description.
Introduce the key skills of identifying and understanding maps and their many properties using background knowledge, activities, connections, and examples of maps and models. Students will gain a deeper understanding of what maps and models are, what can be learned from them, and how to use them to make important connections.
Pair these activities to ones with actual maps of the neighborhood, town, and state to help students make real-world connections.
