Mapping Our Classroom!

This morning Ms. Diem started moving desks around while we watched. Then she drew with chalk on the floor! She drew a map grid, and we turned it into a game-like activity. We found a square on the grid stood on it, and people had to say what coordinate you were standing on. We also measured in meters and converted it to miles using a map scale. We explored coordinate grids, map scale, physical characteristics, human characteristics, cardnial directions, intermediate directions, and mapping overall! It was so fun!

Now the room is back to it's normal set up.
