Have students drag the map titles to the question it could answer. For example, a map titled “Average Rainfall in North America” would help you find out if there is a drought. Next, show students a compass rose with cardinal and intermediate directions. Students can use the phrase, “Never Eat Soggy Waffles” to remember the cardinal directions. Then students will drag directions to the correct position on a compass rose. Students will use a compass rose to answer questions about a map. After this, explain what a map key/legend is as well as an inset map and locator map. Explain how distance is measured on a map using a scale. Have students use the ruler to find distances on the map.
