Map Your World
Map Your World is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they learn about plans by mapping their rooms. The activity begins with a brief explanation of the variety of maps we use, explaining how archaeologists use plans. Kids are then given step-by-step directions for creating a plan that shows their room and its contents. Directions for two additional activities are included, Map a Bigger World and Map Your Room to Scale.
