Maps

I used legos for bricks, toothpicks for sticks, and raffia for straw.

Here's the finished product!
We made "Keys" to show the important places in our replica. Then we made maps and lined up the compass roses to verify that our maps were a true replica. The students learned that if you don't line up the compass rose, the map isn't the same for everyone.
I also read The True Story of the Three Little Pigs to compare to the original. You can get those copies here:

Just found your blog and had to become your newest follower! This mapping activity is very cute! I love the idea of representing a map key in the shape of a key!
