Ms M’s Social Studies

In my social studies classroom (a lot like my general studies!) I find that learning is better embedded when children are having fun with their learning. So upon recapping and practising cardinal and intermediate directions when learning about the political map (looking at the location of provinces and territories in Canada) I decided to plan a treasure hunt!

Students needed to draw a ‘birds-eye view’ map of the school and draw in key locations then write out a set of instructions to their ‘treasure’. Key geographical directions and their compass rose was all they had… ALL STUDENTS ACED THE HUNT!! Here are some pics from our afternoon of fun:

    Having been close by in the parking lot while this was happening, I have to say this was one of the cutest things ever! Wonderful activity!
