Mapping Our Worlds

http://edsitement.neh.gov/view_lesson_plan.asp?id=329

Description: Students begin by depicting the familiar terrain of their favorite rooms. In order to understand the concept of boundaries, they then create maps of areas within their classroom. To reinforce the relationship of small to large and the concept of one area nesting within another, students then compare a series of online geographical maps, beginning with a map of their home state and ending with a map of the world. Finally, students may extend what they have learned by creating maps of other parts of their immediate environments-e.g., routes that they regularly travel. Standards K.4.4 and 1.2.3
