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.

Skills covered:
Using a map key
Using symbols on a map
Using cardinal directions

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.
