Have your students demonstrate their understanding of many different math concepts while designing a map of their own town! This hands-on math activity is a project that will definitely engage your students.

Check out the preview for more details!

Objective: To demonstrate an understanding of geometric terms and measurement. Students will be designing and drawing a map that will incorporate many mathematical concepts.

The following concepts will be covered through this project-based learning activity:

  • Partitioning shapes into equal areas of 4 and 8
  • Regular polygons - pentagon, hexagon, octagon
  • Irregular polygon
  • The three triangles - equilateral triangle, scalene triangle, and isosceles
  • Quadrilaterals - trapezoid, rhombus, parallelogram, rectangle, and square
  • Arrays
  • Congruent figures
  • Lines of symmetry
  • Line segments, rays, lines
  • Parallel lines, perpendicular lines, and intersecting lines
  • Obtuse, acute, and right angle (no degrees)
  • Measuring length (some with fractions others without)
  • Map skills (compass, scale, legend, title, etc)
  • Coordinate graphing (optional to create an index)
  • Perimeter (optional)

The following materials are included:

  • Teacher's instructions and guide
  • Student step-by-step directions - both in metric and standard units
  • Student Checklist
  • Student idea sheet
  • Rubric
  • Practice/math sheets
  • Map materials
  • Editable versions (Powerpoint & Google Slides) so that you can choose what your students need to focus on!)

It is recommended (though not required) that students have access to a math reference book and if possible, geometric stencils or templates. Information is included in the teacher's guide regarding this.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., 𝘹-axis and 𝘹-coordinate, 𝘺-axis and 𝘺-coordinate).
Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.
Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.
Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
