Map It!

We went for a walk today with a homeschooling twist. The girls both had to map our route. Every time they found something with an interesting texture, they had to use some tracing paper to make a rubbing of it. Then they labled the picture (A,B,C) and marked it's location on their map.

They had fun writing the street names and adding in little details like a picture of our house and the playground. We are going to transfer their sketches onto a bigger brown sheet of paper at home. That's Danya's idea "so that it will look like a real map." The top photo is of Danya making a rubbing of a stop sign pole. The bottom photo is of Gloria's map. They both did a good job.
