Map Inquiry

You might remember that last week Mr. Wesselius read our class a book called "Henry's Map." This really got the kids inspired to make their own maps.

Today we used Discovery Education to watch a video about what maps are for, how to use them and the many different kinds of maps.

Then Mrs. Lowe brought out a big map of the whole world! The students were very excited to find Winnipeg, Canada, Cuba and the Phillipines.

Then we read another book about maps that showed how to make a map of your bedroom or house. The students got really excited about this.

During "Thinking and Learning Time" some students began creating and labelling their own maps at our map makers table.

Here are some of the students talking about their awesome maps!
