One special thing that we get to experience during our map/world unit is having the opportunity to learn from a real cartographer! We had a Google hangout with Mr. Mike last week and he spent an afternoon teaching us all about how maps are made, what they represent, and even showed us a few of his favorite maps that he had made. We were then able to ask Mr. Mike a few questions that we had about maps and entertain him with the excitement and enthusiasm that Kindergartners have to offer!
We also started a project of making our very own globes. We made sure that there were 7 pieces of land for the continents, blue for the oceans, and will be adding labels to them this week!
What a great time it has been discovering our place in the world!
