If you study maps, be sure to check out this resource for additional fun in your classroom!

This will help your students recognize and understand the five parts of a map:
- title
- compass rose
- key/ legend
- scale
- grid

Have students bring in maps from home, spread them around the room, give each child a set of printed sticky notes and have them label the different parts of the map they see.

Included in this set are:
- full-size posters of the five parts of a map
- sticky-note templates for your printer
- full-sheet sticky-note templates of each part
- numbered sheet sticky-note template for formative assessment
- observation pages
- two-page assessment

Hang the poster in your class or make smaller versions to put on a binder ring using the tutorial HERE.
