Exploring Maps: Pirate Style {The Basics}

Phew!  I finally uploaded my maps unit, and it is nothing short of a miracle.  It's been one of those units that has really evolved as I've been teaching it, and if I let myself, I am fairly certain that this end up being a 150 page file.  I have to stop though.  I need to enjoy my weekend!  :)  Plus, there's a super cute guy out in the living room reading about finishing basements, and I am fairly certain that I should check in on that.  And spend time with him!  :)  Anyway, I've added a lot, and it ended up being a 68-pager in the end.  If you're interested in finding out more about the supplemental file, you can learn more about it HERE!  {I've had trouble with thumbnails lately, so if you want to see what the contents look like, make sure to check out the preview!}  Some of the lessons involve things like inflatable globes, hula hoops, silly bands, and laminated pirate map place-mats.  So much FUN!  I am also SO excited to incorporate Hope King's edible landform maps this upcoming week!  If you haven't checked out this post, it's a MUST!
