Maps and More Maps

I hope most of you are enjoying spring break. I have been enjoying my 'break', but spring has not arrived. NC has been chilly!

I am back to show you our maps and share a little document you may be able to use if you live in NC. Since I am not a great writer, I rather show you the goods through pictures.

Save your cereal boxes, cut them in half, staple and create classroom maps.
Before you begin, create a key so all of your maps are more or less uniform.
 We decided to map out the biggest items. Then we chose the colors to use before I took out the construction paper.
Some finished samples

Moving on to Me on the Map - NC
I had a small group of kids do a bit of research. We wrote facts behind each circle.

IF you live in North Carolina and can use the circles to make this project. Download  HERE.
Would love your feedback :)

  2. Thank you so much for the freebie. And I loved the cutouts for places in the classroom instead of just drawing them. I will store this idea away for next year!

    Please consider stopping by my blog to help with a special event.
