This Friday, in map explorations, maps crossed paths with literature, when we looked at fictional stories that included maps. I showed the children several fictional maps from books including: Winnie-the-Pooh, Wind in the Willows, and Great Northern?
Next we looked at some stories that don't have maps but could. I read a short book,
Then we made a map to go along with the story. I drew as the children told me what to draw.
The final task was for the children to think of a story and try to draw a map that could go with it. This task was met with varying success but everyone had fun.
