    Help your child make a map of a play space you’ve visited many times, such as a park. This helps them understand maps as representations of actual places.

    K-3rd Grade

    Using blocks or boxes, encourage your child to build their neighborhood. Include important buildings, landmarks, and familiar places.

    4th-6th Grade

    Older Elementary: Next time you go for a walk, make a route on a paper map or in a mapping app and let your child navigate.

    7th-8th Grade

    Find your birthday coordinates. Use the month for latitude and day for longitude. For example, if your birthday is November 26, your coordinates could be 11°N, 26°E. Plot your birthday coordinates on a printed map or look them up in Google Maps. Where are the coordinates located?

    9th-12th Grade

    Broaden your worldview by watching a documentary that takes you to a different country or continent. It could be about animals, food, dance-just as long as it expands your horizons!
