Peer Map Challenge
Have students add items to their classroom maps and place those items around the room. Pair each student with a peer, who must use the student’s map of the classroom to locate those items.
Portland Field Trip
Provide students with hand-held versions of their collaborative Portland map. Take a bus trip around Portland, visiting their special places while students follow along on their maps.
Engage the Community
Invite families and community members in to see the Portland map created by students. Have students teach the guests about the map-making process and share facts about their special places.
