Maths - Location and Transformation Part 2

We are learning that maps are one way that we can help organise information about where things are located. Today, we are going to begin to learn about legends and direction. What is a legend? Legends or map keys use symbols, colors, or lines to represent important places or landmarks on a map. Check out the grid map of Adelaide Zoo attached to this activity. You may like to print a copy of this map if you are working from home. PART ONE Pick ten of the “legend” icons on the map and investigate what they mean. Record what you find out. PART TWO Choose ten different exhibits you would want to visit.What would be the shortest pathway to visiting your ten exhibits?What would be the longest pathway to visiting your ten exhibits? Record your findings. What if you had to add in a toilet stop after five exhibits, would this change your pathway? Use the mic to record your theory and your reasons. ACARA Yr3 - Create and interpret simple grid maps to show position and pathways Yr4 - Use simple scales, legends and directions to interpret information contained in basic maps
