I love to teach about maps! It's hands-on, requires LOTS of pictures and kids love it! I've got a great map freebie just for your classroom, plus videos, games....you name it! If it helps teach kids about maps, it's here!
This is great to begin and end a map unit...quickly goes over the main terms in song. Fun
Need a good video on latitude and longitude? Don't miss this one! It's very clear and easy to understand.
This is a great site...it includes videos for the use of color on a map, parts of a map, and so much more.
AND....a few games!
Learn about map features and play a game at the same time! Love this one called "Adventure Island" by National Geographic!!!
This great game reinforces longitude and latitude skills.
Do you have a SmartBoard? Don't miss this free activity! It is about symbols and keys.
Now for that FREEBIE!
