⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐This was an AWESOME resource for teaching map skills. Lots of ways to use it...students liked having the articles to go along with the notes we did in class. Thank you! - Teach 4 Life

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Perfect addition to my "Me on the Map" activities! Thanks so much!! - Angie T.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐I absolutely loved using this resource at the beginning of the school year. It stunned me how many of my 5th graders lacked basic geographical awareness (and didn't know their complete address), so this activity fit the bill. I'm happy to say that, by the time we finished it, every student's geographical awareness knowledge was MUCH improved! - Julie S.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐I love this resource for my students to progress in their Map skills. I have the picture book: Me on a Map from when I taught Primary grades. This is a great way to reference all that they have learned and expanded upon from younger grades with their Social Studies and Geography skills! - Amber S.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐A great resource for the beginning of the year or to start a unit on maps. It is also very eye-opening that so many students don't know their addresses, county, or even country! - Bonnie R.
