This mapping coordinates activity set has a frog pond theme. There are pages that explore various levels of mapping. There is a page that invites children to draw pond-themed pictures on specific coordinates. Next, you will find a page that asks you to find the coordinates of a specific picture. After that page, there is one that asks you to draw pictures and record their map coordinates. Finally, there is a page that has children draw pictures on the map and chart. It also asks them to record each picture’s coordinates.
You will need to look through the set to decide what pages you what your children. Some pages will be better for some children while others will work better for others. While it would be easy to tell you which pages would work best for different age groups than others, I don’t know your kids. I also don’t know how you will be using the pages with them.
How Can You Explore The Mapping Coordinates Activity Pages
- Children can work through the pages on their own if they have experience with mapping coordinates.
- Children can work in pairs. One person can work on the chart section of the page and the other can work on the map.
- Children can work in small groups. Everyone can work on their own pages, but they can check to make sure everyone is completing each step correctly.
- A whole group can work through a page. A parent or teacher can explain what they need to do and walk children through how to do it.
Before you use any of the pages, you can share the picture flashcards with your children. That will ensure students know what each pond object is. There are B/W and color flashcards in the set.
