Social Studies Lesson - Keys and Symbols, Grade 1

  • Activity 1 / Map Keys Worksheet

    We live in an age where children type directions into an electronic device, but that means that they don't get much real-world experience with reading maps and using map keys. This gorgeous PDF worksheet lets students see a map of the continent of Africa, and allows them to associate map symbols in a key with the destinations on the map. They'll use the key to help them answer the directional questions and feel like they're on an actual safari!

  • Activity 2 / Map Symbols Worksheet

    Even in the day of GPS, being able to read a map is a skill that goes beyond finding location. Using symbols to help locate places of interest and destinations also helps strengthen reading, visual discrimination and critical problem-solving skills. This fun and free worksheet will give children concrete imagery to help strengthen their ability to use map symbols when reading maps and locating specific places.

Great app
Wow! This app is really great. For the first time my kids actually enjoy learning math and reading. The games on Kids Academy are educational and really fun.

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
