Map Skills & Art Class

Posted by Unknown | | Posted On Thursday, February 2, 2012 at 4:31 PM

Today we had Eli's Art class and homeschool fellowship.

 Eli did watercolors, he painted his mask, and created a people picture.

At homeschool fellowship I had the opportunity to teach map skills. 

I had all intentions of taking pictures of the kids creating the compass, using the compass, playing N,S,E,W or NE, SE, NW, SW outside after finding our bearings.  

They also filled in their compass rose, we sang a song about the continents and oceans too.

But since I was teaching and I forgot my camera, it was a bit difficult to take pictures during the class.

The kids also learned to read a map that I found on-line, see below.

And at the end of class the kids created a my planet to my address flip chart. 

I saw this idea on Pintrest.  

Next week we are going to have a Valentine Scavenger Hunt using our map skills we learned, and create topographical maps with sand.
