Describing a neighbourhood by identifying its landmarks and to create visual representations of a community. This helps with the understanding of citizenship as children learn about important landmarks and places in their community.

Step-by-step instructions for other teachers

Talk about what a map is. How is it used? What information does it contain? If you have one, show it to the child and discuss it.

Ask your child what characteristics a map has.

Have your child draw a map of their neighbourhood. Let the child include familiar and personal landmarks on the map, such as stores, playgrounds, a friend’s or neighbour’s house, the place of prayer, fire station, school, etc.

Check the map’s accuracy. Let the child take a walk around the neighbourhood to check that the information on the map is accurate and make corrections as needed.

What kind of results to expect?
