Learning About Maps

Today we took a look at maps.

We simply made a street on the floor with nice stops along the way. We had water, grass, a sensory construction site, bridge to drive under and a school.

Needless to say the boys spent almost an hour in the construction site before they started driving under the bridge and pretending to swim in the water.

We drew a map on construction paper of the same streets and sights, then we had the boys follow the map and drive their cars to where they wanted to go.

They got lost on the way to finding the construction site but after a few tries they finally made it! They learned to match the pictures on the map with the actual replica of the street.
