Maps and Models

We learned about models and maps this week. We watched a discovery streaming video on maps and models and then we used models the kids found in the classroom to create a model of our school. We found a doll from the block center that looked like our principal so we used her to represent the office. The kids thought this was too funny. We also read a great book about maps called Me on The Map. Then the kids drew a map of their bedrooms and labeled them. They came out so cute and I thought it was a good activity because it was something relevant and personal to them.
