This As the Kids Come and Go: Mapping a Classroom lesson plan also includes:
Map the classroom with your kids to help them understand how maps work and how to read them. The lesson plan starts off with a story about animals living and moving around the globe, and then kids create maps of their classroom to show how they come and go, just like the animals. They'll draw and label their maps then practice giving each other directions. Note: If your teaching Common Core be sure to double check the standards listed, the lesson plan may not meet them all, fully.
