This performance task requires students to use their knowledge of map keys, symbols, cardinal directions, use of a compass, landmarks, and landforms. Students are asked to be cartographers that need to create a map to help their peers get to a class party at school. This real world task is engaging and fun. My students loved this activity and their maps were really interesting! An exemplar is included so students can see what a final product should look like. There is also a simple rubric that makes grading fast and easy!
