Mapping Unit: Maps for Here, There, Everywhere.
Natoli, Alberta; And Others
This experimental unit consists of developmental activities for grades 1-3 to help children become more aware of their environs. The three main areas of emphasis are: distance, direction, and symbols. The specific goals in each of these areas are: 1) Distance--to measure, compute distances and finally understand simple scales; 2) Direction--to follow simple directions and to locate specific areas on a map; and, 3) Symbols--to identify symbols and their function on a map. It is hoped that by reinforcing mapping activities with a variety of materials in each grade, children will progress to a more sophisticated understanding of maps. The activities are listed according to grade level and each of the concepts mentioned above. A variety of both indoor and outdoor activities are suggested. (Author/JLB)
