Exploring Maps Activity Packet is a great compliment to your Me On the Map unit. My students love working on these activities. When student groups are engaged in the activities, I take a step back, watch, listen, and work one to one with students. It is great to have the students engaged in “teaching” their friends.
This packet contains four different activities:
- a board game
- a bingo game
- I Have, Who Has activity (works best when teacher led)
- a “swat” activity
I introduce the activities one at a time. This aids the students when working in small groups and I am not able to be right beside them.
Included in the packet is a Continents, Oceans, & Map Skills Test. On the assessment students identify the seven continents, five oceans, fill in a compass rose, and identify a map key.
To save ink the packet is black line and looks great printed on colored cardstock.
