Description

Overview:
After the whole class looks at maps and globes and explores legends/keys on the map and how symbols represent places/objects/meanings of drawings/details on the map, all students will work together in small groups to collaboratively draw a map of the school.  Each group of 3-4 students will create their own map of the school.  Then as a class, students will analyze and critique the maps and find the positive attributes of each map.  Then higher-level students will take the assignment further by analyzing the layout/structure/plan of the school and deciding what changes would make the school better.  They will then work collaboratively to create a map of a “new school” which makes changes to their school to make it more eco-friendly, easier to get around, a better layout for classes, with additions that make it a more enjoyable and functional place to be, etc.  This lesson was developed by NCDPI as part of the Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project. This lesson plan has been vetted at the state level for standards alignment, AIG focus, and content accuracy.
