Maps and Directions

Hello People of Room 116!

Last week our class went on an adventure. We made left turns, we crossed bridges, and we discovered an amazing park. Along the way we created a class map so we can return in the future. You may want to try this activity with your children. Try taking them somewhere and create a map along the way. Have them label streets, create symbols, use a compass, and make a key. Here are some websites and games to help you and your student learn more about maps:
