I used this book to introduce maps skills in my first grade room. The kids loved it!
This book is great and helps build mapping skills. I bought to go with a globe as a Christmas gift.
"Me on the Map" introduces the idea that maps are a visual representation of a place. I used this book in my first-grade classroom to start a lesson on maps. The story is written in kid-friendly language, and the pictures help kids to understand the story. The main character starts by explaining a map of her room, then moves on to her neighborhood and eventually shows a map of the word. After reading this story as a class, my students were able to create their own maps of their rooms. I would recommend this book to any teacher or caregiver who wants a fun and educational read.
This book was an excellent tool to use for an introduction to geography lesson for my kindergarten class!
My grandchildren loved it!!
Me on the Map is a great book to use with your students learning about maps. It gives them a sense of scale and how they personally fit into the mapping process. A wonderful extension activity could be having students draw a bedroom map of their own on Kid Pix Deluxe!
