Product Description
In this activity, students will design a city and include several required buildings (fire station, hospital, etc). They will create a symbol for each item they include and put it on the map key. Finally, they will answer questions that require them to use the grid system to locate objects, and also make two of their own questions about their map and answer them.

Skills covered:
Using a map key
Using symbols on a map
Using cardinal directions
Using a grid system to locate items on a map

This can be used as an assessment after these skills have been taught, or as an activity to reinforce the skills while students are still learning them.
