Marvellous Maps

Task 1: Draw a Floor Plan

 

What is a map?

Where have you seen them before?

What are they used for?

 

Have a look at the PowerPoint below to learn more!

Have a go at drawing a floor plan of your bedroom, like the one in the PowerPoint. Then, maybe you can try drawing a different room in your house. 

Task 2: Match the Map Symbols

 

Maps use symbols because detailed pictures and words would take up too much space! Have a look at the PowerPoint below to find out more about map symbols.

Have a go at playing the symbol matching game below!

Task 3: Plan a Route

 

When we have to travel from one place to another, we need to plan a route - the way we need to go.

 

Have a look at the PowerPoint below to learn more about routes.

Now, use the map of Hilsea to draw a route from the school to a place on the map. Then, write a description of your route for someone in your family so that they can follow it. Don't forget to use road names, places you may pass, and compass directions!

 

Challenge: Can you plan a different route to the same place? Which route would you take if you were to travel by bus, bike or car?
