This workjob is an activity about using directions to get from one place to another. The first part of the activity is where the students will practice using directions and the second part is where the students will write out directions. The activity includes a map of a school with pictures, activity cards with directions, a compass rose, game piece, blank note card, and answer key. It is intended for first grade.
This resource has a ton of great worksheet games or activities that will increase my students map skills. I would use these as independent practice or a group activity after teaching them the different parts of a map.
This package contains a variety of handouts, worksheets, a lesson idea, and an activity to help teach students map skills such as scale, cardinal and intermediate directions, types of maps (planimetric, thematic, topographic), and basic map elements (legend, title etc.)
