We hung up a map of the world in our red room.
We explained that it was our Earth just like our globe but flattened out.
This led us to a conversation about maps. "what is a map?"
We talked about how maps can show different things. They can show us where the continents are on the globe and they can show us how to get from our home to our school.
The children drew their first maps. We asked them to draw their map starting at their house and ending up in a destination of their choosing. We talked about the things we see on the way.
