Use this product to teach your students about mapping and grid lines. This is a precursor to teaching longitude and latitude. To use this product as designed, you will need 9x12 manila paper for each student and the book “Me on the Map” by Joan Sweeny. This book introduces the different things that can be mapped. Read the book and then use the power point below to introduce your students to using grid lines on a map. When finished with the book and power point, give each student a piece of the manila paper and have them draw a map of their room at home. Depending on your population, it may be their bedroom, or just a room at home. When finished with their maps, have students share with a partner or the whole class.
