Map making

As part of our Position and Orientation maths theme we used equipment to make our own town maps. We used shapes to create the buildings. Then we needed to create a key to show the names of each building. After we finished our map, we used them to write a set of directions from one place to another. We needed to use positional language such as left, right, forward and next to. Then we tested our directions with a partner. We found this more challenging that it seemed!
