Explorative mapwork

Introducing mapwork and direction is an important theme in Grade 4 Social Science. The students use grid maps and grid squares to learn how to orientate themselves on a map. This year due to Covid, the lesson plan had to be adjusted to accommodate group work while staying socially distant. The group task was adjusted and the lesson was taken outside. The painted grids on the playground (used for social distance) became an interactive Pirate Map. The Grade 4s were able to navigate, interpret and explore map work on a larger than life grid map. Let’s hope Pirate Penny appreciates the effort they went through to hide her gold from that pesky Black Beard!
