Students have started working on their maps for the Jolly Christmas postman project. They have learned how to use the index at the back of an atlas to look up a city's name.
Next, they look for the page number and the alphanumeric grid coordinates to find their city.
We looked at a variety of different kinds of legends and created some symbols for a class to use for our maps.
Students began labeling their own maps with large cities, Capital Cities, bodies of water and other interesting details. Take a look!
