Product Description
Teaching Map Skills is geared to 3rd and 4th grade students and covers:
identification of continents and oceans
use of a compass rose
reading a legend or key
study of longitude and latitude
types of maps
reading a map

Maps and quizzes with answer keys are provided for each of these subjects. For example the compass rose and legend sections include
two maps of the U.S. with simple cardinal points
a map of Ohio with intermediate cardinal points
a more complicated map of Maine with intermediate cardinal points and a legend
questions the teacher may ask orally for each of these maps to familiarize students with the compass rose and legend.
a quiz based on the Maine map

A more involved quiz is geared to longitude/latitude lines, and a final quiz tests all knowledge students have learned so far. A total of 10 maps is provided. All quizzes have answer keys. The unit also includes several suggested websites for further study, interactive games and map puzzles, and I have made several suggestions for enrichment to integrate map study or geography to other subjects in the curriculum. Teaching Map Skills is 27 pages long. All lesson plans, quizzes, and maps are available as PDF downloads.
