Year 4 – Making Maps and Writing Directions
February 11, 2020
During the last month, children in Year 4 have been learning about maps, legends and directions with Mr Kai and Mr Nick. They began the topic by learning how to read a map and a legend. They then learnt about how to read and understand directions before having a go at writing directions themselves.
Once students had learnt the basics of maps and directions, students began designing their own maps and legends. The locations of the students maps varied from fantasy worlds to city maps. The objective was to create a map and direct their friends from a starting point to a destination. The students had so much fun with this topic and can use their new found skills in real life environments too.
