What Are the Essential Features of Map?

We’re glad you asked!

From an early age, our students will no doubt be exposed to a map of some sort. Whether it be a map in a book of puzzles, a map of the world on a classroom wall, or even a map of a route from one place to another on an adult’s phone, there’s no denying that map skills are essential in today’s society!

This teaching presentation has been designed to introduce early years students to maps and their features. Some of the questions that will be answered in this presentation include:

  • What is a map?
  • What is a map title?
  • What is a compass rose?
  • What is a legend?
  • What is a scale?
  • What are lines of latitude and longitude?

Presented in age-appropriate, student-friendly language, this Geography resource will transform your students into budding cartographers in no time!
