My class enjoyed this activity one year in preparation for their trip to the Bronx Zoo. This version is at a very basic level and does not involve a coordinate grid or directions. Teachers should laminate the map and the matching pictures and use Velcro to create a classroom/workstation activity. Teachers can use the worksheet to introduce and reinforce basic map concepts and can then laminate the worksheet for further reinforcement at a workstation.
I recommend bringing laminated versions to the actual zoo field trip so students can keep track of where they are going and can further discuss their map.
