Map Quest | Map Skills Activity | Paper
This creative mapping activity takes the map skills students have learned and wraps them into a creative project that only takes moments to prep, but gets hours of engagement. Your students will get to argue why their map is the best through a writing task, too.
Students have been hired by a map-making company to develop maps for their archives. Students will have a choice of which maps they create.
This engaging product includes:
- teacher instructions for different ways this activity can be used. This is a map-making and writing activity.
- student pages.
- basic rubric for marking.
- student reflection pages.
- student awards.
- Canadian and American spellings.
Ninja Note: This project does not specifically teach anything about maps. It will work for project-based learning or as an independent activity.
Ninja Note: This file is a PDF and requires printing for students to use the student pages.
