On The Grid

Australian Curriculum
Measurement & Geometry – Location & Transformation
Level 3 & 4

This week we are posting a unit on using grids and maps.
As students explore grids, maps and directions, they will become familiar with the purpose and features. This unit allows students to work with grids and maps, create their own maps of familiar locations and develop their understanding of scale and legends.
