This week we are working on our mental mapping skills. Students are learning to form maps of their environment both indirectly, by using their experience and knowledge of places they have been, and directly, studying maps and recalling locations.
We will be practicing drawing maps of different places by memory in class. On Thursday students will use the map of the school they drew to create a scary story. Students will draft, edit and publish their stories on Monday.
Their will be no homework if they are able to complete their rough drafts in class Thursday and Friday. Rough drafts must be ready by Monday.
