Making a Map Cartography Student Project Assignment
I used this activity in all of my Social Studies classes, grades 6-11, at the beginning of the year to refresh basic mapping skills.
This rubric requires students to get involved in their path to school and to create a 3-D map of the trip. Students must include significant and favorite places, as well as research using mapquest or another online source for estimated mileage.
My students love this activity and I love hanging the results around my room! Assignment and rubric on handout.
This activity is also included in my Introduction to Ancient World History Complete Unit as a culminating project assignment.
