Having fun with maps!

Hands-on makes learning such fun!

Finding the right directions on a treasure map

We are really enjoying  K-2 Maps Rev 1 I downloaded this pdf. from Intellego Unit Studies and K-2 Maps Rev 1 has plenty of online links, videos, as well as worksheets to print out and suggestions for a variety of hands-on activities for each concept.

Last week the girls had to make an aged treasure map.  They hid a little “treasure” somewhere in the house and had to mark clues, landmarks and number of steps and directions to find each other’s treasure.  It was a great learning experience!

Today we made maps, to scale, of their bedrooms.  My 10-year-old pretended she was an interior decorator and was so professional!  We are building some useful skills for possible careers ~ isn’t that wonderful?
