Created for student in 2nd-4th grade, Barefoot Island is a fun, engaging project to help reinforce mapping skills. Students create their own legend using 10-15 symbols that are typically found on maps (i.e. Grocery Store, Gas Station, School). They then add those symbols to their map of Barefoot Island. Students become city planners as they place their symbols in appropriate zones. Glue the complete map and legend to construction paper and you have yourself a great social studies project to hang in the hall!
