CONNECTIONS: 3rd Graders’ Map Exploration

Yesterday, on our way to the library, we each attempted a map of our route. We noted street names and landmarks.

Today we continued our exploration by looking at maps of our city. We worked on measurements, distance and ratios. Our tools included an old road map of Tucson (we discovered that maps change as cities change!), Google Maps, rulers, the IDEA School’s address and our students’ addresses.

Next, we’ll be mapping out our school site itself, using different units of measurement.  How close will we get to the architect’s rendering?
