In the world of GPS navigation, it's easy to overlook the importance of map skills. Use this printable activity to reinforce the geography skills of using a compass rose, legend/key, map scale, road names, and more.
This map can be used in more than one way. Teachers can add their own navigational instructions to the map and ask students to determine the location of a "hidden treasure" in the neighborhood. Or, students can write their own clues and trade maps to play with each other.
By using the community landmarks shown in this neighborhood and being mindful of map features, the treasure can be found!
