Activities for Map and Compass Study, Grade Level 4-6. Environmental Education Series, Bulletin No. 247-I.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD.
This bulletin is one in a series of environmental education activity guides for grades K-12, developed and field-tested by teachers in the Montgomery County (Maryland) Public Schools. Primarily for use in the middle grades four through six, the guides are not intended to constitute complete units in themselves. They are, rather, a compilation of activities considered appropriate for particular environmental studies. In this guide about maps and compasses, for grades four through six, are activities entitled: Estimating Pace, Locating North, Compass Exercises, Landmarks (Azimuth), Shooting a Back Azimuth, Calculating Magnetic Declination, Compensating for Magnetic Declination, Following a Course, Sketching a Map, Estimating Heights, Drawing a Topographic Map, and Mapping. Each activity indicates the instructional objective, procedures to follow, and materials required. Teacher notes are added when necessary. A student evaluation sheet concludes the bulletin. Related documents in the series are SE 015 885 through SE 015 891 and SE 015 893. (BL)
