In this lesson, students will review reading maps and will learn how to construct and use maps.
Students will be able to read, construct, and use maps which have a title and key.
Students will review what a map is and look over a map of a park. Then they will be introduced to how they can easily make their own map and use it for a certain purpose. For example, a map of their classroom to create a new student seating arrangement.
Students will read various maps by using the title and key to glean information. Then they will complete an activity to show them how to construct a simple map using drag and drop. They will discuss with a partner about how to use a map for a certain purpose once it has been constructed. Students will be given a task to construct a map of the location of their choice and then use it to help them achieve something. For example, make a map of a backyard in order to determine where to place items for a birthday party at home.
Review maps with 10 questions.
Students will spin a wheel and then match the place. Then they will provide an example of some things that would be on a map that they would construct of the particular place.
