Let your students dive into an actual map of the United States. They will search for different elements of a map, while working in cooperative groups.
The following elements of maps will be searched:
*Following roads/highway numbers
*Comparing a map to a globe
*Locating different sites (oceans, national forests, states, etc.)
Attached at the end of the document are cooperative learning cards, where each person will have a certain job to perform during this activity!
