Fairytale Map

Before starting this bulletin board, gather your class to design it. Talk about the features of maps; you should tell students to help you list the things that are found on most maps, including markings for rivers, cities, mountains, lakes, boundaries, etc. There are often features shown that are dependent on the type of map--water level, elevations, railroad routes, etc. Have students get into groups to make this interactive bulletin board. You may want to assign specific features of the map to each group (i.e. one group places all the rivers on the map). Cover the bulletin board with light blue butcher paper. As the groups create their part of the map using construction paper and other materials, they can add their sections to the board. This bulletin board is good as a continuous class project where students can continue to add more features or landmarks. When the map is "complete" have your students name their Fairytale Land. You may want to have them create a story based on this place.
