Maps & Globe Learning with Printables

Maps & Globe Learning with Printables - 3Dinosaurs.com

For this months activity for Where in the World, we did some world map learning. We read two books with this the first is Maps and Globes (Reading Rainbow Books) and the second was a book called Follow That Map!: A First Book of Mapping Skills

To start this off is a FREE Printable Mini World Pack!

Min World Pack - 3Dinosaurs.com

This is a very mini pack with lots of things you can do with it. This really is a mini pack. There is no tot pack with this one. This is a simple and easy set to learn the 7 continents as they match up to the map of the Earth map in the pack. I wanted to do a lot with this but ran out of time to get it all done. This does match up very nicely with the theme of the month plus is a great way to learn about the Earth. You can see below how we used this pack with the book: Maps and Globes (Reading Rainbow Books).

I loved Follow That Map!: A First Book of Mapping Skills. It was perfect learning for Mary. She got to find things on the keys and follow simple directions on the page. It was loads of fun and taught her about lots of maps skills. She liked looking for north, south, east and west. If you are looking for a simple book about maps that is hands on learning for younger kids this would be perfect.

We read Maps and Globes and did a few map activities while we read the book.

The first activity that we did was make a clay type map with playdough. Each of them got to add their own part to the map. Each had their idea of what should be on the map and was important.

We talked a lot about the world map and globes and flat maps. We colored a flat map of the world. We color the oceans blue and then the 7 continents. Then we marked north, south, east, and west. Mary used the from the Melissa & Doug Jumbo ABC Chunky Puzzle. The older two made their own compass on the page.

The last activity we did with the book was learn about different types of maps and how they can be marked. We look at the South America map and used that as a guide to color our maps.
