Map Skills Freebie

9 more teaching days and we are done! Tomorrow is a Report Card Writing day so we have it off. Lucky for me I am done my report cards……all I need to do is a few re-reads!

In Social Studies…we have been working on the cluster “My Environment". Outcomes include identifying  Manitoba as our Province and Canada as our Country….constructing and interpreting maps and working on characteristics of a community!

I created a quick assessment for my kids so see if they were able to interpret a simple map using a key.

Students had to colour their animals the right colour, cut and then independently read the sentences, interpret the map and the glue the animals where they belonged!

It gave me a good idea of who was able to find the symbols in the key, interpret them and use that information to read the map!

Ignore the hand drawn roads…I didn’t know how to make that part and had to use my mouse! They are very wobbly..lol!

If you would like this freebie please email me for it!

    1. Thanks Jackie! We don't have tons of map skills either...just introduction stuff. We worked on constructing a map of our classroom a while back as well as we did Me on the Map circles and a book! Click on Social Studies to find those posts!
