Map skills ~Differentiated! US Geography Activity for kindergarten, first grade, and second grade!
Create a super cute 7 page "Me on the Map" ~ map skills ~ geography book. This helps teach some of the most basic "must know" geography! I have included 2 versions: A guideline font with dotted words to trace AND a version for differentiation with just blank guidelines for more experienced writers.

Step-by-step directions and pictures can be seen on my blog:

Me on the Map ~

To get started, I photocopy & cut a class set. I only pass out one page. I collect it when they are finished, so the paper stays wrinkle free. We focus on one lesson each Friday, and review the concept throughout the week. I start with Earth and the globe, then the continents, country, state, city, and finally my address. I laminate the pages and have a parent cut & collate. Then, I bind them. They are beautiful on their desks during open house. Best of all, the kids LOVE creating their books!

I have 2 versions that allow me to differentiate. For lower level students, I use a guideline font with dotted words to trace. Higher level students write the same sentences from the board but are only provided with blank guidelines.

In my sample, I colored each tab using a ruler. For the class set, I plan on putting a different colored sticker dot (or colored star) next to the title of each page before laminating them. Another option would be to copy each page on a different light colored piece of construction paper and forgo laminating altogether.

Directions for the "Me on the Map" geography book are included.
