Students in Ms. Moran's 3rd Grade class at Cherry Hill concluded their study of maps with a special celebration. During 3-Moran Map Mania, students were able to share their final projects for the Geography unit with family and friends. Students first studied maps, identifying items found on maps, such as a compass rose, a map key, etc. Next, students planned and created maps of their own imaginary towns. After the maps were created, students began to type descriptions of their towns in a Google Document. Students included messages from their town's mayor and descriptions of special places in their town. Next, with the helpf of Mr. Garafano, students transferred their town descriptions and put them into a brochure, which included pictures that students found on Google. Finally, 3-Moran students read aloud welcome messages for their town and shared their maps with family and friends during their Map Mania celebration. Watch the video below!
