During enrichment first graders have begun to explore the idea of mapping. Mapping skills connect to our study of community. Before we can become expert map makers, we need to practice reading maps. This week students were given a map of the enrichment classroom and asked to search for clues around the classroom, when students found a clue they had to mark its location on their map. I was impressed with student's ability to read a map, and we had a lot of fun!
