PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help your students practice using a map key, a compass rose, and a scale to read, interpret, and create basic maps. Perfect for teaching geography or quick assessments in for grade 1, grade 2, and grade 3!

---

The following print-and-go map skills activities are included:

Map Vocabulary Foldable: Students cut along the dotted lines to create three flaps and then fold along the solid line. Under each flap, students define the vocabulary word shown on the top of the flap. Words included are map key, compass rose, and scale. In my own classroom, I use this foldable with an introductory map skills video found on Brain Pop Jr. (This is a paid subscription based service.) Alternatively, you can pair it with a map skills read aloud or provide definitions for your students.

Reading a Map Printables: Students will use the map at the top of the page as well as the map key and compass rose to answer questions found at the bottom of the page. Two printable maps (Our Neighborhood and Our Zoo) are provided.

Our Campground Coordinate Map Printable: Students will complete the coordinate map and answer corresponding questions by following the instructions at the bottom of the page.

Our Playground Map Making Task: Students will work alone or in pairs to create a playground map based on given criteria. A directions page checklist, symbols, and map paper are provided. Students could also complete the map by drawing their own symbols if desired.
