Create Your Own Map (a Treasure Map!) Students LOVE this fun & engaging way to practice cardinal and intermediate directions with a Treasure Map and/or Treasure Hunt! You can use the Treasure Hunt and Treasure Map activities separately or together, both have accompanying grading rubrics. Also included is a full and half-page Compass Rose for wall display or student reference.

Treasure Hunt:

Students work alone or in groups to pick a small object to hide in the classroom. First, they must choose their starting point and then work together to design the treasure hunt. I have found it helpful to check each groups’ directions for accuracy before sending other students to hunt!

Example directions:

-Start at the classroom door.

-Then, take 1 small step South.

-Next, 5 hops Northeast.

-After that, turn and face West and take 1 large lunge..

Treasure Map:

Have students draw a map of the classroom, school, or other familiar location. Then, they can draw in a path to treasure where X marks the spot!
