Our SS curriculum only touches on maps and globes and my students were really interested in the subject matter. I'm so glad I found this here on TPT so that I could supplement with some fun activities. The kids loved them! Thanks so much.
Fantastic resource! The term/definition mini-posters are very useful for teaching, and the mini-books will be a great learning activity. I will definitely use this to supplement my geography/mapping unit for first grade!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
I am looking for some activities for my grade 1/2 class for their mapping unit. They are not overly independent - I am just wondering if you feel like this will be suitable. Any additional info about what is contained would be excellent.
I have spent most of my years teaching in the primary grades including 1st and 2nd grade. I love teaching the littles ones and I feel so rewarded each day when I go home knowing I taught them something new or impacted their life in some way.
