Grade 3 ELA Module 1, Unit 3, Lesson 2

READING MAPS: LOCATING THE COUNTRIES WE HAVE BEEN READING ABOUT

This lesson is meant to engage students in exploring and working with maps. While they will not master map reading with just one lesson, they will begin to develop some background knowledge about how maps give information about a place. In addition, discussing how maps support understanding of informational text lays important groundwork for the research students will do later in this unit. Map reading needs to be reinforced during other times of the day beyond this ELA block.
