1. How to read a map
2. The elements of a map
5. Cardinal and Intercardinal Directions
We spent a great deal of class time practicing the skills mentioned above (reading maps, deciphering keys, using compasses, giving directions using the terms north/south/east/west).
For homework, students will creating their own treasure maps! For this assignment, students will be creating a map on large-scale graph paper. Their maps will include a start point, an end point, ten obstacles, and step-by-step directions using the cardinal directions to get from the start to the end. For more information, see the assignment sheet.
