Fifth-graders are learning spatial skills as they examine the parts and purposes of maps. They’ve been discussing how maps can assist people within communities and began by exploring the Bridgehampton school community. By sketching and using sticky notes, they are learning the language of location and expanding their geography skills. They also created maps to help new students navigate the school and included a compass rose, legend and scale. Teacher Meredith McArdle hopes to have these drawings saved to compare to maps of the new school additions in the future.
