Me on the Map
April 08, 2009
"I recommend the book, "Me on the Map". If you haven't used it, this book is great for teaching about maps to kindergartners. To help teach a class about map skills, have every child make five contacts. Have students write letters, send emails or make calls to family friends or relatives that live in other states asking them to send emails to your class. By counting by fives, your students can figure out how many responses they might receive. Their messages could request that the recipients pass the word along in the hopes that others might respond as well. This project covers so many skills such as writing, skip counting, reading, and of course, map skills."
