A long time ago we started making maps. And then a lot of first grade happened and we took a break for a while :) But we're back at it! Over the past few days we broke up into groups and explored the school from top to bottom and side to side. We worked in teams to create detailed maps, while we tried to remember where everything went and figured out how to spell different teachers' names. We made legends to show our thinking and label this maze of a school. It was challenging to work with a group of six to accomplish this, but we figured out how to talk to each other and compromise to get it done. A valuable lesson for sure!

Look at this awesome TEAMWORK!
