Teaching Tips

During the "development" activity, students may need teacher assistance in "decoding" the map of their state and what all the symbols mean; there is a great deal of information provided all at once, which could be overwhelming for some students.

All of the material is available in printable form.

This activity has a clearly written lesson plan/teacher's guide.

Map symbols are color coded and may be difficult to interpret for those who are color blind.
