Symbols and Legends

http://interactive2.usgs.gov/learningweb/teachers/mapadv.htm

Description: Mapmakers often use symbols to represent real features in the environment. For example, in a map of your city, mapmakers will not draw a separate picture of every school. Instead, they draw a square with a flag on top as a symbol of a school. Then, each school, whether it is big or small, long or narrow, will have its location marked with this same symbol. Learn about the symbols used on maps and create symbols for your own neighborhood map. Standards K.4.3, 1.2.3
