This distance learning packet now includes printable and digital mapping skills activities based on the book Me on the Map by Joan Sweeney. It will provide you with everything you need for an in class lesson or an independent work project your students can do for at home learning to practice social studies, geography, and map skills.
It is easy to differentiate these integrated language arts and social studies me on the map activities for students between first grade and 5th grade. You can instruct the students to simply illustrate each page of the flip book template as you guide them through it or you could have more advanced learners research and write about the location on each page.
As mentioned above, this project is based on Joan Sweeney's book, Me on the Map. It would be beneficial to read the book with the project, but it is not necessary. As part of this project, each student designs a layered step book to represent their place on the map. You may then have them create an art project of themselves on the earth to match the cover of the picture book. It makes a great bulletin board or wall display!
This is my BEST-SELLING product of all time and has been successfully used by teachers in grades 1-5. I love knowing it is being enjoyed in classrooms, well… All over the map!
