Description

Our Introduction to a Map lesson plan familiarizes students with the definition of a map and its parts, using cardinal directions, and reading a map. This lesson solidifies understanding with a simple map creation activity using provided supplies. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity to create a map of an imaginary town using paper houses and other buildings and drawing in streets; they must also name their town before they present it to the class, sharpening their presentation skills. Students are also asked to match terms with their correct definitions in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define a map and its parts, use cardinal directions, read a map, and create a simple map using provided supplies.

Map Making Made Easy

This lesson plan is great. The resources alone allowed me to create an original lesson using the procedure in the Map Making Lesson Plan. I work mostly with Arts Integration in Academics so my students are going to love learning about map making, reading a map, and creating 3D pop art maps.

Great Introduction to Maps Lesson for 3rd!!!

My kids really liked this lesson! They got to be creative and design their own maps after being introduced to them from the lesson! It was very useful and effective for my students.
