This term Hokusai have been learning about the different symbols used on maps.We then designed our own symbols to create a map of our classroom. Next we looked at the floor plans of school including the grounds and decided to make a map of the 2nd floor in school as we didn’t go up there often. In groups we took pictures with I pads of the different areas and features and labelled the map with a key using our own symbols. We then used the pictures to indicate where each area was.
