Where Children Play to Learn

All About Maps

on January 26, 2018

The boys and girls of TAS Preschool have been investigating maps and what they’re all about.  We started this curiosity with maps when we were doing our International Week.  We began using our classroom globe and the students wanted to know more about what was on the globe, how to find things, etc.  So we started from the beginning this week, learning about what a map is, when we use them and how we make them.  As an assessment for their knowledge on the subject, we asked the children to go home and create their own map of their bedrooms.  They did a great job.  What they didn’t know was that we would ask them to sit in front of their peers and give a talk about their maps.  While it did make some of them nervous initially, I was so proud to see how great they all responded to the challenge!  Check it out!
