Map Making

Map Making

Our map-making project began early in the 2014-2015 school year spontaneously from conversations in the Goldfinch class. To extend the children’s interest, Goldfinch class teachers looked at a variety of maps with the children and read a wonderful big book called “Me on the Map” that featured a child thinking about maps of her room, house, street, larger community, out to the whole earth. This led to a class decision to make a map of the school playground.

Soon, the project expanded to all the classrooms at the school.

These documents represent some of the planning and communication with parents that went into this great project:
