Using map skills learned in class, students must design their own amusement park. Students must include map elements such as scale, a legend, symbols, and more! They must also write about and explain their "best" ride. This activity has always been one of my students' favorite projects! It's a fun and unique way to wrap up a mapping unit or a fun project for social studies!

I encourage the students to pick a theme for their park - I've had Rock N' Roll Parks, Vampire Parks, Video Games, and more! A fun and unique way to finish a Geography or Mapping Unit!

Please note that although you are able to create a TpT Digital Activity with this resource, the map is meant to be completed on paper.

Includes 11 pages:

  • Teacher instructions
