This week was all about learning simple maps skills. We learned about how to use the four cardinal directions, recognized the United States Map, Texas map and our city map!
We started the week finding our continent, state and city on Google Maps. My kiddos loved it! We even look for our school and local stores! They were so amazed! 

To put in practiced what we learned my students created this cute craftivity. They needed to identify and label the different maps we learned in class.

They labeled, cut, colored and pasted each map.

They labeled the Earth.

The United States Map.

The Texas Map.

The Forney map.

And here is their final work!

And now they are hanging in our classroom! ;) 

You can find this fun craftivity in English & Spanish HERE.

They also created their own maps, using a map key and the cardinals directions!

For more ideas like my Facebook page and follow my TPT store! 

Have a great week!
